一级亚洲做人爱c视频三分钟 Big Data and the Credibility of the Future Julia Simon-Kerr, The University of Connecticut School of Law Credibility is defined in legal dictionaries as worthiness of belief, and in practice attributes like a witnesss demeanor and perceived candor, as well as markers such as prior convictions are central to legal credibility. In this way, credibility doctrine entrenches a preference for certain performative or status-based aspects of believability. For those who are unable or unwilling to conform, this system is used to discount testimony, often silencing criminal defendants. Although there is little to suggest that credibility doctrine furthers the objective of assessing a persons actual truthfulness, legal actors assume that credibility is or should be a measure of a witnesss propensity to lie. This talk addresses the future of legal credibility, in which the disjunction between how credibility is performed and evaluated in courtrooms and the ideal of truthseeking presents two possible paths: the financial credit score in the United States and the emergent social credit scoring system in China offer alternative visions of credibilitys big data future. The former models a limited approach that might seek to unbundle the propensity for lying and focus on measuring that quality algorithmically. The latter models algorithmic credibility writ large a system where the government makes choices about what attributes and behaviors should be accounted for algorithmically in order to manufacture a social credit, or in this case a credibility score.
