Over-reliance on predictive analytics & automated decision systems (ADS) is risky business, particularly in areas of “black box” medicine and life sciences, where one mistake could be fatal. Governmental use of ADS in the realm of criminal justice and talent acquisition is likewise controversial. Consequently, there’s been a wave of litigation in this area.

In this provocative session, we’ll examine the legal implications of algorithmic malpractice.
