About the talk
A daily scan of news headlines shows that technology has become invasive and pervasive in every aspect of modern civil life. The increasing use of artificial intelligence technology by law enforcement and criminal justice institutions is raising serious issues for civil liberties and social justice. “Bad data” disproportionately targets already marginalized populations that have faced historical systemic discrimination. This discussion will touch on the consequences of the current application of Artificial Intelligence technology on initiatives to achieve equity and justice in our civil institutions.
A big virtual. Hello Cisco area. I'm 11 years old and this year of my undergraduate studies in mathematics and computer science. It's my dream to be an entrepreneur in artificial intelligence for I can work on platforms that actually used as a force for socio-economic equities. I wish we were all together in Dublin, Ireland that we stay safe and that we keep others safe as we work on bending the Curve. Look up side of the covid-19 X in it has been that science data and snacks are born
again, right I do and more. Let's get started can civil liberties survive the era of artificial intelligence. Remind me that quote just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they aren't after you. Put the general public in the term artificial intelligence can evoke frightening images of super intelligent robots will take over Humanity. Fun fact there really is an international organization called The Campaign to stop Killer Robots. I found them all doing some research reality
visible to the eye circles about the standard. I think I ate too many challenging to do and meanwhile this technology is already as we know it. Look at some of these recent headlines from The Washington Post. Prosecutors are now accessing personal devices and surveillance technology to track or activities even Alexa. There are now part of law enforcement tools to help with their cases. These are just a few instances of how are is able technology made a mention George Orwell on
that slide, right? Who is a famous headline most of you will recognize facial recognition software 28 members of Congress as criminals after matching or rather mismatching their photos with mugshots from police databases. Amazing. This is funny because he know motionless identified minority members of Congress civil rights icon. John Lewis everyday in a way that is proportionately affects minority communities. I'm guessing you guys do this to the first 30 minutes of every morning
pretty much every aspect of Our Lives Escape it and chivalry, especially for populations that faced historical systemic discrimination, and now in the face of the covid-19 around the world. reportedly to reduce Community spread and protect Public Health There was a viral video of China is in Talking drums and other masturbate in quarantine suggest Singapore South Korea Israel, and even certain US city to enforce quarantine quarantine up to the 19th contact racing system to help governments, and the
problem is that it's way too easy for governments to use our temporary tank to permanently expand their power to monitor movement. populations to Target for monitoring doors and civil liberties groups Also, I'm just talkin about authoritarian regimes democratic government offices open in Revelation about the US government's Mass surveillance program and how the government has Justified its extensive breach of our constitutional rights. free free prevailing tools used by government agencies
facial recognition predictive risk assessment models and crime prevention software what's just briefly look like each of these three areas. First facial recognition technology biometric technology to scan millions of faces from videos and photos. The world without their consent while conducting their normal everyday lives estimate 640 million images. Is the facial recognition software also raises serious concerns about fairness and Justice by encouraging false arrest and potentially wrongful
convictions on top of my equals. What time is the fundamental or free site even reaches accuracy issues not exist. second tool predictive risk assessment models used by prosecutors and judges for two purposes First to predict a recidivism score it will be given to a defendant of math destruction. How big Read that when I was 9 years old. She wakes up predictive risk models incorporate more than a hundred data points related to a defendant history. These include the defendant's prior contact with law
enforcement prior convictions Define. What sentence should be for this particular crime? About that for a second in our justice system partly by the actions of their friends and relatives in 2016 killed by the company North Point and other justice system institutions across the u.s. the model predicts a convicted persons recidivism score Propublica also like the peasants were 77% more likely to receive high recidivism scores from violent crimes than white defendants. In one
example a black woman squirt of recidivism score of 8 out of 10 after she was arrested for stealing a bicycle. Whoever said Venom score after he attempted to commit an armed robbery. Soccer Hero 5 out of years in prison for a previous armed robbery. severe disparity underscores in the bias and discriminate by race and her dog hello world by the stress of the complicated relationship between power and justice. if you work seasonal and error Unfortunately due to the stomach by season boat
should answer neither. This brings us to the third tool crime prevention software to predict likely to occur. I like facial recognition software and recidivism saw models that Target individuals crime prevention software targeted geography. Apartments for rent in South Fork and uses crime such as loitering or 10 and 11. Widespread in poor neighborhoods doctors are in the neighborhood. This is going to work with soft words now send more police officers to that neighborhood. the over-representation of minorities in their arrests
and convictions, especially for petty crimes results in the loss of stability and family structure Kathy Julio called Which justifies more poison a result in a system where y'all graffiti becomes a proxy for race? So what does this all mean privacy issues of these Rai and Abel Technologies? I hope it's okay to quit myself from a piece. I published last year in the MIT technology review. This predictive algorithms are based on finding patterns in historical data impulse generated outputs. For example, the criminal justice system historically
incarcerated minority vote for every category of crime Criminal Identification of recidivism patterns will only perpetuate this problem. Is a Wayne and it is being used currently and technology is reinforcing or even increasing systemic Injustice against minority groups that are over-represented in a criminal justice system as further separating the application of justice and fairness between the privileged and the underprivileged. So what should happen
fortunately groups around the world are becoming better of technology definition of personhood are human rights self-determination fairness Justice and privacy. Are you at the House of Representatives launched a bipartisan artificial intelligence caucus in 2017 to study the economic and social impact of AI in the most important aspects of American life, including our privacy and civil rights? In October 2019 the FBI secret surveillance tactics involving facial recognition technology.
Kinderbook imported public and private dancer efforts to balance our Public Safety needs against excessive intrusions on our civil liberties International Coalition of experts should be formed of the United Nations. It would be tasked to developing for the ethical and just application of AI technology. Otherwise, we will continue of person run. I would like to enter with a quote by Hannah fry. It's about breaking open the algorithms in finding their limit without separating the harm from the good and deciding what kind of a world we
