Duke in DC

Technology has played an increasing and critical role in criminal justice for decades, and it shows no sign of slowing down. From exonerating innocent people through DNA tests to research on false confessions, forensics and much more – advanced technology and artificial intelligence (AI) specifically have major implications for our nation’s criminal justice system.

On November 15th, join Duke in DC for a discussion with Duke’s Cynthia Rudin, professor of computer science and recipient of the 2021 Squirrel AI Award for Artificial Intelligence for the Benefit of Humanity and Brandon Garrett,  the L. Neil Williams, Jr. Professor of Law and director of the Wilson Center for Science and Justice, moderated by Nita Farahany, the Robinson O. Everett Professor of Law and founding director of Duke Science & Society.

The panel will address the intersections of artificial intelligence and criminal justice, what are the promises and peril and how the federal government can help incentivize innovation and enhance transparency, equity and fairness in the criminal justice system.
