  • May 4 AI in the Administrative State: Applications, Innovations, Transparency, Adaptivity 8:00 AMLaw School 4000

    Artificial intelligence (AI) is being employed in the private sector to optimize production processes, pricing, and other business functions. But apart from national security and law enforcement, productive uses in the public sector have received less attention, despite recognition that the administrative state's foremost challenges include efficient processing of ever-increasing amounts of data, and adapting to new information over time. The Center for Innovation Policy at Duke Law, the Center on Law & Technology, Duke Science & Society, and the Rethinking Regulation Program at the Kenan Institute of Ethics are holding a joint conference to explore promising uses of AI and the challenges they pose in administering diverse governmental functions involving science, technology, health and intellectual property.

  • Aug 21 Eyewitness Evidence in the Courts 12:30 PMLaw School 3043

    Eyewitness testimony can be incredibly powerful in court. "There is almost nothing more convincing," Justice William J. Brennan Jr. wrote in a 1981 dissent, "than a live human being who takes the stand, points a finger at the defendant, and says, 'That's the one!'" However, we now know that eyewitness memory is fragile and it is malleable. This panel will explore how eyewitness misidentifications can cause wrongful convictions. Second, the panelists will discuss scientific research on how improved lineup procedures can help to improve reliability of eyewitness evidence. Third, the panelists will discuss how to address these questions in the courtroom, including through jury instructions. Panelists will include: Judge Ted McKee, U.S. Circuit Judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit; Karen Newirth, Darrel Stephens, Jon Gould, Tom Albright, and Prof. Brandon Garrett as moderator. Lunch provided. Sponsored by Professor Garrett. For more information, please contact Sarah Holsapple at sarah.holsapple@law.duke.edu.
