Algorithmic tools are used by the state for predicting violence, hiring teachers, and assigning welfare benefits.  How should constitutional rules of equality, due process, and privacy be understood in this new context? In this talk, Professor Huq will consider how new computational instruments can be analyzed in constitutional terms.

Aziz Huq is the Frank and Bernice J. Greenberg Professor of Law and Mark Claster Mamolen Teaching Scholar at the University of Chicago Law School.
