Quotes

“AI will transform law. The decisions we make today will determine whether that will be for good or ill.” – Michael A. Livermore, University of Virginia

 “There are real concerns that predictive analytics will be used to entrench existing biases rather than promote justice. Researchers and policy makers have to get serious about addressing this challenge head-on.” – Daniel N. Rockmore, Dartmouth College and Santa Fe Institute
