The legal system is increasingly reliant on machine-driven evidence including biometric identification, cell service location information, neuroimaging, and computer-automated DNA profiles. Although these technologies are remarkable, they pose challenging legal and ethical questions. Speakers at the conference will address constitutional concerns about privacy, self-incrimination, and confrontation; the reliability of machine evidence; the role of racial discrimination and bias in technology; and the ethical implications of technological evidence.
