Artificial Intelligence. Machine Learning. Deep Learning. Automated Decision Systems. Data Analytics. What does it all mean? How does it affect the public? Should it be regulated? The implementation of automated processes create unique challenges for law and policy. A panel of legal, governmental, and industry speakers will discuss issues concerning automated processes and its interaction with the public. The panel will aim to identify how governments and large industries are integrating automated processes, and to highlight the potential role of lawyers and public interest practitioners in ensuring the lawful, ethical, and conscientious implementation of data-driven processes as it continues to transform society.
