Rank #1: Hi-Phi Nation: Risky Business
At different stages of the criminal justice system, computerized risk-assessment algorithms are slowly replacing bail hearings in determining who goes to jail and who goes free. This is widely seen as progressive reform, but may in fact be leading to more incarceration, not less. While many are warning that these algorithms are biased, racist, or based on bad data, the real problems are in fact much deeper, and even harder to solve.
Guest voices include Megan Stevenson, John Ralphling, Renee Bolinger, Georgi Gardiner, and Seth Lazar.
