The Human Rights Approach to Artificial Intelligence

November 7, 2018, 4:00 pm-5:00 pm

Artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to address some of humanity’s most pressing challenges, such as those relating to healthcare, education, transportation, and criminal justice. AI also brings new human rights risks as diverse as non-discrimination, privacy, child rights, security, freedom of expression, and access to public services. The swift development of AI raises many new challenges for human rights, such as how to undertake human rights due diligence for complex technologies and how to address the massive uncertainty in how AI will evolve. Delve into the debate around designing a new generation of human rights due diligence methods that enable the integration of human rights into company decision-making about AI across all industries.
