Ethics and Explainability of AI

Ethics and Explainability of AI Algorithms in Legal Use Cases: Legal Tech Webinar

Do we understand the ethics and explainability of AI algorithms as they relate to legal use cases? We’ll discuss in this upcoming EDRM webinar!

Wednesday, January 11th at 1pm ET (noon CT, 10am PT), EDRM will conduct the webinar Ethics and Explainability of AI Algorithms in Legal Use Cases (available here). This webinar will discuss key considerations for using AI and machine-learning algorithms in legal use cases, and how to address them. Topics will include:

  • AI Legal Use Cases Over the Years
  • Acceptance of AI and Machine Learning in the Legal Community
  • The Challenge of Bias in AI Algorithms
  • Use of AI Algorithms in Criminal Law
  • Privacy Considerations and AI
  • Using AI in the Practice of Law
  • Questions to Ask Vendors About Their AI Products

I will be participating with Tom O’Connor (Director of the Gulf Legal Technology Center), Mary Mack (CEO and Chief Legal Technologist of EDRM) and Dr. Maura R. Grossman, Research Professor, University of Waterloo, Canada and eDiscovery Lawyer/Consultant/Expert/Special Master. We will address questions like:

Do we understand how AI algorithms work? Are they explainable, and do they need to be? Are they trained to be fair and unbiased? Do we know how they are used to track information about us (even without our knowledge or consent)? Do we, as legal professionals, understand current and emerging ethical rules, guidelines, and other regulations for using them?

It promises to be a terrific discussion on a laser hot topic! Register here to join us as we discuss the ethics and explainability of AI algorithms as they relate to legal use cases!
