March 18 Monday

Binary Governance, Margot Kaminski '10, Associate Professor of Law, Colorado Law

  • 12:10PM to 1:30PM
  • SLB Room 122

Machine Learning algorithms (or AI) are used to make significant decisions about individuals, from credit determinations to hiring. These decisions are opaque, often unpredictable, and different in kind from human decision-making. Algorithmic decision-making remains largely unregulated under U.S. law. It is, however, regulated under the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Recent discussions of how to regulate algorithmic decision-making have centered on the value—or lack of value—of individualized transparency, such as the much-discussed “right to explanation” in the GDPR.
