(Im)Perfect Enforcement Conference

“(Im)Perfect Enforcement”: an Information Society Project conference with a contribution by Amélie Pia Heldt at Yale Law School in New Haven, Connecticut on April 6-7, 2019.

Recent technological advancements enable an unprecedented level of algorithmic decision-making processes and automated legal enforcement actions. Both of these methods of replacing humans with algorithms are often celebrated for “more perfectly” enforcing rules. Social media networks employ algorithmic decision-making to scale content moderation; criminal justice institutions delegate decisions on sentencing, probation, and risk to algorithms; machine-to-machine contracting in high-frequency trading depends on both algorithmic decision-making and automated enforcement; and blockchain technology and smart contracts aim to create self-enforcing contracts.
