Shona Ghosh, provided by Published 11:02 am CDT, Wednesday, March 27, 2019 HENRY NICHOLLS/Reuters Lawyers for former Autonomy CEO Mike Lynch shot back at HP on Wednesday in a blockbuster $5 billion fraud trial. Lynch's lawyers described HP as "floundering" in the run-up to its $11 billion acquisition of Autonomy in 2011.

By Christopher Mims WSJ Sat., March 23, 2019 Lawyers for Eric Loomis stood before the Supreme Court of Wisconsin in April 2016, and argued that their client had experienced a uniquely 21st-century abridgment of his rights: Mr. Loomis had been discriminated against by a computer algorithm. Three years prior, Mr. Loomis was found guilty of attempting to flee police and operating a vehicle without the owner’s consent. During sentencing, the judge consulted COMPAS (aka Correctional Offender Management Profiling for Alternative Sanctions), a popular software system from a company called Equivant. It considers factors including indications a person abuses drugs, whether or not they have family support, and age at first arrest, with the intent to determine how likely someone is to commit a crime again. The sentencing guidelines didn’t require the judge to impose a prison sentence. But COMPAS said Mr. Loomis was likely to be a repeat offender, and the judge gave … [Read more...] about Our Software Is Biased Like We Are. Can New Laws Change That?
