The Need for AI, Algorithmic, and Automation Bias Audits - February 2023 Webinar - Background Image

The Need for AI, Algorithmic, and Automation Bias Audits:

Understanding New Compliance Requirements 

Recorded: February 22, 2023


Artificial intelligence and automation are playing an increasing role in employment decision making – and regulators are taking note. New York City has already enacted a requirement that “automated employment decision tools” be assessed for potential bias, California has proposed revisions to its anti-discrimination regulations that directly address these tools, other states and localities are rapidly moving forward with their own forms of regulation, and OFCCP is reviewing employers’ use of AI tools.

Although different in their specifics, all of these new compliance requirements are aimed at ensuring that the use of AI-enabled and automated tools for selection, promotion and other employment-related purposes does not result in biased outcomes.

Join experts Victoria A. Lipnic, Esq., Gurkan Ay, Ph.D., and Ye Zhang, Ph.D., from Berkshire’s new corporate partner Resolution Economics, as they discuss these new regulatory requirements, how AI Bias Audits can help you comply with them, and what goes into an AI Bias Audit. 

Attendees can expect to learn about:

• Why regulators have become so focused on AI-enabled and automated employment tools

• The current and future state of regulatory and compliance requirements

• What an AI Bias Audit can provide

• How to prepare for an AI Bias Audit

• Be guided through an example of an actual AI Bias Audit

• And more!
