Frank Pasquale, professor at Cornell Tech, is an expert on the law of artificial intelligence, algorithms and machine learning.

Pasquale says:

"This is a commendable initiative by New York City. The city has a good grasp of the general nature of key opportunities and challenges posed by AI in administration. 

“With this plan, it has articulated a clear intent to engage both experts and the public in a range of areas necessary to assure more transparent and inclusive provision of services. The devil is in the details, of course, but it is heartening to see this worthwhile initiative."
