Webinar Faculty:  Devshi Mehrotra and Leslie Jones-Dove

About the Webinar:    We have developed a software tool that generates automated transcripts for video evidence and enables attorneys to easily take time-stamped notes and generate clips in preparation for trial.

About the Faculty:  Devshi and Leslie co-founded JusticeText during their final year as computer science students at the University of Chicago. The two bring with them extensive expertise in software engineering and applied machine learning, having previously interned at such companies as Google, JP Morgan, Microsoft, and Facebook. They care deeply about the ways in which their technical skillsets can be leveraged to support criminal justice reform efforts.
