Frances Green, Of Counsel, moderates “Legal Challenges Confronting U.S. Corporations,” a law seminar hosted by the Japan Society.

In addition, automated and augmented intelligence technologies are increasingly used in U.S. workplaces, including for recruitment, career planning and promotional opportunities. Can the algorithmic patterns in these technologies result in bias that violates state and federal nondiscrimination statutes?
