Will AI Revolutionize or Wreck Criminal Justice?

Recording: Will AI Revolutionize or Wreck Criminal Justice?, Date TBA

Join Preet Bharara, former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, podcaster, and NYT best-selling author of Doing Justice and futurist Nita Farahany, Duke Law professor and author of The Battle for Your Brain, to discuss the growing use of artificial intelligence (AI) and neurotechnology in criminal justice. AI is already being used for high-stakes decisions about who should get bail and be punished, and even to interrogate criminals to see what their minds will reveal. Will AI decrease bias and make criminal justice more humane, or wreak havoc with decisions that are less transparent and lacking human empathy? What rights do we have against government misuse of our brains? Can technology help us transform our justice system to better serve the people it is meant to protect?
