Boston HUBweek - Programming the Future of AI: Ethics, Governance, and Justice


Tuesday, October 10, 2017, 12:00pm to 1:00pm


23 Everett St #2, Cambridge, MA 02138

The Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society will host a talk focused on the evolution of artificial intelligence, with a particular emphasis on ethics, governance, and criminal and social justice. Drawing from the research, community building, and educational efforts undertaken as part of our Ethics and Governance of Artificial Intelligence initiative, we will hold a discussion to share and reflect on insights from ongoing activities related to the judiciary and fairness. Key questions that animate our work include: how do we prepare court systems, judges, lawyers, and defendants to interact with autonomous systems? What are the potential societal costs to human autonomy, dignity, and due process from the use of these systems in our judicial systems?

The discussion will be led by Harvard Law School Clinical Professor and Director of the Cyberlaw Clinic Chris Bavitz in conversation with special guests. This event will be live-streamed and archived on the Berkman Klein Center website.
