CCSRE Faculty Seminar Series | Sharad Goel | Law, Order & Algorithms
Data and algorithms are increasingly used in the criminal justice system, from
tracking individuals with aerial cameras to deciding which defendants to release on
bail. These developments offer the promise of greater efficiency and equity, but also
pose significant challenges for traditional notions of privacy and fairness. This
talk will describe several recent applications of algorithms in criminal justice,
and discuss the subtle technical, ethical, and legal issues such technology raises.
Sharad Goel, Assistant Professor, Management Science & Engineering, and by courtesy Computer Science and Sociology, Stanford
