To overcome racism in the criminal justice system, some envision employing artificial intelligence and other technical tools. However, as sociologist Nicol Turner-Lee warns, if we're not careful, these new tools may end up reinforcing the very racial disparities they were purportedly designed to eliminate.
In this webinar program director, Dr. Lester Andrist, moderates a discussion with Chief Cassandra Deck-Brown of the Raleigh Police Department and Director John Monaghan of All Aces, Inc. Both panelists offer insights born from experience on questions such as how law enforcement can play a role eliminating institutionalized racism, how to build trust within communities of color, and how to counter the problem of implicit bias.
