Explore how Human Rights and Values intersect with AI!

While the proliferation of AI into society has raised widespread ethical concerns, the discussions concerning the problems and prospects of human rights and human values in the age of AI has not kept pace. We neglect these questions at our peril, as AI may usher in an era whereby fundamental protections are circumvented or become obsolete as these technologies alter the threat profile. Conversely, we may also miss the opportunity to enhance human well-being with an overly narrow focus placed upon contemporary conceptions of human rights. AI will also undoubtedly reorient human values, such that it becomes necessary to frame worlds that we would like to build and live in with AI and to initiate these discussions during this critical window of opportunity. 

Please join us in thinking together to push forward-thinking at the intersection of human rights, human values and AI.
