AI-DR Program Automated Decision-Making and the Law Clearinghouse Project

Automated decision-making or the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) as part of organizational processes has now become a regular feature of our society. From receiving a job offer, to being allowed bail, to being afforded a credit line, to directions for medical treatment, consequential decisions have increasingly been delegated to automated systems. One public perception is that automated decision-making is fairer, or could even be more lawful. This perception stems from the belief that human bias may be eliminated in automated decisions. However, as emerging research has shown, unlawful discrimination can flow from the bias that remains encoded in automated decision-making systems. The increasing evidence of unlawful discrimination resulting from bias in automated decision-making systems has created an urgent need for the law to attend to the development and use of these systems to preserve the bedrock legal principles of equal protection and equal opportunity.

The aim of this clearinghouse project thus is to highlight seminal and impactful articles focused on issues of AI Decision-Making and the law.The AI-DR Program is pleased to share a searchable database of legal scholarly articles related to AI, automated decision-making and the law.

Below we highlight the seminal or topical articles in the following sensitive areas:

(A) AI and Administrative Work, (B) AI and Criminal Justice, (C) AI and Education, (D) AI and Employment, (E) AI and Financial systems, (F) AI and Health, (G) AI, Immigration, and Human Rights, (H) AI Regulation, (I) AI and Surveillance, (J) International/Comparative Regulation, and (K) Regulatory Approaches. We also introduce books, documentary films, and other media that have been created to address legal issues stemming from the use of automated decision-making. We hope that this clearinghouse will serve as a useful resource for a wide array of stakeholders including: legal scholars, practitioners, media, and students of AI and the Law at every level.
