Our popular Racial Justice Series returns with “Algorithmic Justice” a panel discussion on the use of AI and the potential negative legal impacts of indiscriminate use.

As our world becomes increasingly reliant on technology and artificial intelligence (“AI”), new legal issues arise.  We invite you to join us for this insightful panel on algorithmic justice,the application of principles of social justice, and applied ethics to the design, deployment, regulation, and ongoing use of algorithmic systems so that the potential for harm is reduced.

With our panel of experts, we will discuss the potential negative legal impacts of the use of AI and how to identify discriminatory applications in the areas of consumer finance, employment, education, housing, and more. Further discussion will include how local governments are responding to this newly engaged tech and relevant pending legislation before the DC Council.
Our panelists include:
  • Enid Zhou, Senior Counsel at Electronic Privacy Information Center (“EPIC”)
  • Alex Ault, Policy Counsel, Digital Justice Initiative, Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law
  • Kevin De Liban (he/him), Director of Advocacy, Legal Aid of Arkansas
  • Sebastien Monzon Rueda, Esq. & Bardia Bastin, Esq (co-moderators)

This engaging evening of learning is free for Washington Council of Lawyers members and $10 for the general public.

Get ready to better understand the potential consequences of the use of AI and how we can hold such systems accountable.
