Mitigating Legal & Ethical Risks in Public Agency Use of Automated Decision-Making Tools: AMI to host webinar — TO BE RESCHEDULED

By Events, Mikhail Reider-Gordon Event

We apologize for any inconvenience & will be in touch when the new date is finalized REGISTER HERE

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.

The recent hack and leak known as the #29Leaks for the address of Formations House, located at 29 Harley Street in London, made public fifteen years’ worth of leaked documents showing that Formations House, an incorporation agent, formed over 400,000 companies, many of which have been used by fraudsters and individuals linked to organized crime.  Earlier leaks, such as the Panama Papers, have also disclosed that professionals such as formation agents, lawyers, and accountants have assisted criminals, kleptocrats, and others to hide their shady dealings from authorities around the world through the use of shell companies to conceal the true or “beneficial” owners of these entities.
