Lecture to discuss artificial intelligence and the justice system

The Law and Technology (LTEC) Lab at Windsor Law will host a discussion on the impacts of algorithms, automated decision-making, and artificial intelligence on human rights, due process, and access to justice at noon Wednesday, Nov. 20, in the Farmer Conference Room, Ron W. Ianni Faculty of Law Building.

Featured speakers include Nye Thomas, executive director, and Ryan Fritsch, counsel, both of the Law Commission of Ontario. The discussion will summarize the commission’s research and consultations on these issues and explore the extraordinary growth of this technology in the Canadian justice system and internationally.

The Windsor Law LTEC Lab is a community of interest that gathers University of Windsor faculty, students, and alumni whose research, teaching, work, and experiential learning initiatives revolve around the themes of law and technology — and whose work is embedded within institutional themes of access to justice and transnational law. The lab collaborates regularly with the Faculty of Law, campus faculties, and community partners to host workshops, conferences, and speaking engagements each year.
