A lot has happened from Cardozo Law's founding in 1976 to the first day of classes in 2016. The school kicks-off a year-long celebration to highlight the enormous achievements made by our faculty, alumni and students over 40 years.
Techly - Professor Frischmann believes we need an inverse Turing test to determine how close humans are getting to becoming machines. He argues that “techno-social engineering”, increasing surveillance and ‘nudges’ – subtle psychological manipulation – are slowly making us more like our robot friends.
Billboard - The 1976 Robert Redford-Dustin Hoffman film All the President''s Men about the Watergate break-in gave movie viewers an idea of the chilling atmosphere during the years of the Nixon Administration when political opponents were followed by FBI agents and wiretapping of telephones was a regular occurrence.

Professor Brett Frischmann was recently interviewed on the Algocracy and Transhumanism Podcast discussing his work on human-focused Turing Tests, a test for intelligence in a computer, requiring that a human being should be unable to distinguish the machine from another human being by using the replies to questions put to both.
