Does AI Have a Place in the Courts? Here’s How Experts Weigh the Risks and Benefits

July 2, 2018, The Recorder

Lee Tiedrich recently spoke at the U.S.-China AI Tech Summit and is quoted by The Recorder in an article examining the pros and cons of introducing AI into the judicial process. According to Tiedrich, AI in the justice system also implicates questions of transparency and intellectual property. In cases where it’s alleged that AI perpetuates hiring discrimination via a biased algorithm, for example, the maker of the intelligence tool may be asked to disclose an algorithm, Tiedrich said. And if that algorithm is a trade secret, IP problems could arise. “The key takeaway from the U.S. perspective is, as technology continues to advance and move forward, it’s important for [the AI] community as a whole to say, what are the legal issues impacted by AI, [including] security liability, and come up with [a] sense of the rules and guidelines that properly balance all of them,” she said.
