Mathematical modeling and algorithmic decision-making is explosively expanding its reach in governance, policy, and across the spectrum of human activity. The law isn’t necessarily catching up very quickly!

In this Loeb Lecture, Moon Duchin gave a tour of how mathematicians are using randomized algorithms to track political fairness, and how courts and commissions are trying to make sense of the story we are telling. She used partisanship in Missouri as an illustrative case study.
