  • Starts: 12:30 pm on Monday, April 30, 2018
  • Ends: 2:00 pm on Monday, April 30, 2018
*This talk has been postponed from its originally scheduled date of Thursday, January 11, 2018. Join the Data Science Initiative and Cyber Alliance for a special colloquium, featuring BU associate professor of law, Ahmed Ghappour. The talk, titled "Machine Generated Culpability: Inscrutable Machine Evidence in the Criminal Legal Process" considers the question of whether and to what extent fact-finders in the criminal legal process should defer to factual outcomes generated by “opaque” algorithms whose form or functionality cannot readily be digested by human-scale observation and reasoning.
