Injustice Ex Machina: Predictive Algorithms in Criminal Sentencing

1. In “Algorithms Have Gender Schemas Too,” Mandy Davis discusses how algorithms often reproduce the gendered norms and power dynamics of the society that made them. However, she also argues that algorithms have the potential to address gendered inequities. According to Davis, how might algorithms be used to “create a less gender-schematic world”? Do you find her argument compelling? Why or why not?

2. Andrew Lee Park examines the use of predictive algorithms in criminal sentencing. According to Park, why might using such algorithms be problematic? What does he mean when he says that the data itself can have a structural bias?

3. According to Yael Eisenstat, why do tech companies continue to struggle with algorithmic bias and what can they do about it?
