The cities of New York, San Francisco and Oakland have passed local laws designed to address bias in automated decision-making (ADM/AI) tools. Alabama, Massachusetts, New York and Vermont have all recently passed legislation either requiring or attempting to establish oversight of the use of ADM/AI in state agencies to help ensure fairness, accountability, transparency and ethical use. A recent precedent-setting case in the EU found a municipality to have violated its citizen’s human rights for use of ADM/AI where the decision-making was opaque. Forms of ADM/AI are already deeply embedded in society and can be found in public agency settings from allocation of employment, housing and other benefits to criminal justice and policing. Several U.S. court rulings in the past couple of years suggest there is a growing recognition that public agencies employing ADM/AI must provide auditability, or transparency mechanisms, as well as oversight to help minimize the chance of harms such as bias and discrimination impacting citizens. Join this panel in a discussion of applicable regulations and of practical approaches toward achieving transparency and accountability in an emerging area of compliance and ethics for public agencies and those who contract with them.

Who should attend:
General counsel and compliance and privacy officers from public agencies at all levels; attorneys representing municipalities, special districts; counsel/compliance officers from companies that do business with local, state and federal agencies; civil and human rights law defenders; personnel from IG offices; anyone interested in understanding entry points for discrimination and bias.
