CJS 240 Seminar in Justice Informatics 3.0 Credits

Justice Informatics. Digital Justice. Data Justice. These are the theoretical and ethical contexts that frame our discussions of how the government and other entities create, use, and archive data they have gathered about members of our society. Many people are familiar with predictive policing; we have heard the terms “racist algorithms” and “artificial intelligence." But few people actually know how these activities and concepts apply to our institutions of criminal justice, and how they often conflict with society's desire to secure privacy in a data-driven world. This seminar explores Justice Informatics as a subfield of Criminology and Justice Studies. Students will learn how to conceptualize justice informatics as that intersection of information science, AI, justice, and criminal justice.
