Exciting new developments in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and other technologies impact the delivery of civil legal aid to our client communities and require that we understand the practical impact of those tools on justice for poor and working-class people in the United States. Virginia Eubanks, author of Automating Inequality: How High-Tech Tools Profile, Police and Punish the Poor, will provide her findings from in-depth investigations into the Indiana welfare system, the Los Angeles homeless services system, and a Pennsylvania child welfare risk assessment system. This session will include a discussion about how our increasingly automated world affects our clients and advocacy.
