Start Date: 9/27/2019Start Time: 5:00 PM
End Date: 9/27/2019End Time: 7:30 PM

Event Description

This panel will explore how algorithms are changing criminal law enforcement. From policing to sentencing, criminal justice institutions are being transformed by technological change. The event will bring together an interdisciplinary group of experts from academia, industry, civil society, and public service to identify and explore some of the most urgent challenges relevant to this transformation: ensuring accountability and fairness for individuals affected by new programs, advancing values of privacy, transparency, and openness, and accounting for institutional considerations and constraints within government. The panel will feature advocates, public officials, and noted experts to survey how the city of Philadelphia and the state of Pennsylvania are confronting the challenges and opportunities raised by algorithmic governance.

Participants will include: Rachel López, Drexel (moderator); Mark Bergstrom, Executive Director, Sentencing Commission; Mark Houldin, Policy Director, Defender Association of Philadelphia; Nyssa Taylor, Criminal Justice Policy Counsel, ACLU of Pennsylvania; and Hannah Sassaman, Policy Director, Media Mobilizing Project.

This event is open to all and will be followed by a reception. Please RSVP via Eventbrite.
