At the AI Now 2018 Symposium, Virginia Eubanks from the Universty of Albany, Philip Alston, from the NYU School of Law, and Vincent Southerland,from the Centre on Race, Inequality, and the Law at NYU, discuss the topics of the year that have put AI, ethics, organizing, and accountability in focus.

Over the past year, research and advocacy have continued to expose bias, error, and misuse of Artificial Intelligence technologies–from law enforcement’s use of facial recognition to healthcare algorithms that drastically and erroneously cut benefits for the sick.
