Washington, DC (July 31, 2023)Epstein Becker Green and its affiliate consultancy EBG Advisors have announced two additions to their national network, further expanding the consultancy’s artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities.

Mosaic Data Science, a leading data science consulting company, and Ethics Through Analytics, a group of social scientists, join EBG Advisors in the expansion of the nationwide algorithmic bias auditing and risk management consulting services.

Developed in alignment with the AI Risk Management Framework developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), EBG Advisors unites data and social scientists to identify and advise on processes that can help reduce bias in AI without being cumbersome or blocking progress.

“As NIST aptly outlines in Special Publication 1270, identifying the future impacts of AI  requires the involvement of a multidisciplinary team of professionals,” said Bradley Merrill Thompson, Member of the Firm at Epstein Becker Green and Chief Data Scientist at EBG Advisors. “Our advisory adopts this socio-technical perspective, pairing top-notch attorneys from Epstein Becker Green with industry-leading data and social scientists—like those at Mosaic Data Science and Ethics Through Analytics—to critically evaluate the AI lifecycle for potential risk and abuse.”

Although many legal advisors have only recently instituted AI-related services, Epstein Becker Green has advised clients on AI systems for many years and has been involved in more than 200 health care and labor or employment projects involving AI. Attorneys in Epstein Becker Green’s Artificial Intelligence practice continue to help clients understand how AI-based technology can be applied to their businesses while also identifying possible harmful outcomes.

Recently, Epstein Becker Green held its annual AI Briefing, “Achieving Legal Compliance in AI: Minimizing Bias in Algorithms,” which focused on AI-related legal risks and how to tailor compliance programs to address those risks.

“Until recently, companies utilizing AI systems have scarcely gone beyond the technical to consider the social and legal implications of what they were constructing,” said James P. Flynn, Managing Director of Epstein Becker Green. “Governmental agencies at all levels and in all disciplines are racing to implement new regulations on this technology. Therefore, it’s exceptionally important that decision-makers employ multidisciplinary, technically-savvy, and socially sophisticated teams. Counsel must couple such attributes with relevant legal knowledge. Our proven experience, which comes from successfully creating or working within such teams as we have assisted clients across all major domains, allows us to do that.”

EBG Advisors is equipped to provide clients with the following services relating to algorithmic bias within AI:

  • Robust evaluation of algorithms and the process by which they are built.
  • Developer and user algorithm bias testing services.
  • Consulting services to help mitigate bias while preserving utility.
