NIST’s Proposal on Bias in Artificial Intelligence Roundtable

The effects of algorithmic and data biases continue to make headlines and erode public trust in artificial intelligence (“AI”). Recruiting software unfairly discriminates against women and minorities, facial recognition tools used in law enforcement misidentify specific demographic groups, and algorithms for diagnosing and treating diseases perpetuate inequalities.

In an effort to develop a framework for mitigating the risk of bias in AI, the National Institute of Standards and Technology ("NIST") has issued a proposal for identifying and managing bias in AI and is accepting comments on the proposal until September 10, 2021.

Join us on Tuesday, July 27, 2021, for a lively virtual roundtable discussion as we explore the good and the bad in NIST’s proposal and the legal implications for businesses using AI tools in their operations. This roundtable will serve as a forum to help companies that are evaluating whether to file comments and what to include in their comments, as well as an opportunity to connect with peers.

We hope to see you then!
