 The Unmet Need

The American criminal justice system is rooted in racism. While the system's history of discrimination and inequality is well-documented, mitigating the problem of bias within the system is still a resource-intensive process. Although Black people only make up 13% of the U.S. population, they make up 38% of the incarcerated. They are also 7½ times more likely to be wrongfully convicted of murder in the U.S. than are whites, and about 80% more likely to be innocent than others convicted of murder, according to a 2022 report by the National Registry of Exonerations.

Black defendants receive sentences that are almost 10% longer than those of comparable whites arrested for the same crimes. Most of the disparity can be explained by prosecutors’ initial charging decisions, particularly the filing of charges carrying mandatory minimum sentences.

SIID™ Technology aims to leverage principles of data science and machine learning to address the problem of biased and inequitable decision-making in the criminal legal system.
