Event Details

Join us for an engaging and thought-provoking event that delves into the ethical considerations surrounding artificial intelligence (AI) and its implications for human rights and the Rule of Law. Our distinguished speakers, experts in the field of AI and human rights, will provide deep insights and perspectives on this critical and timely topic.

The rapid advancements in AI technologies have brought unprecedented benefits to various aspects of our lives, from healthcare and transportation to education and communication. However, these advancements also raise pressing ethical questions that need to be addressed to ensure that AI is developed and used in a manner that respects and upholds human rights and the Rule of Law.

Our speakers will explore the multifaceted ethical challenges posed by AI, including issues of bias, fairness, accountability, transparency, and privacy. They will discuss the potential impact of AI on fundamental human rights, such as the right to privacy, freedom of expression, equal treatment, and access to information. They will also explore the ethical responsibilities of developers, policymakers, and society at large in shaping the development and deployment of AI technologies.

This event will provide a platform for robust discussions and critical reflections on the ethical dimensions of AI and its implications for human rights and the Rule of Law. It will bring together professionals, policymakers, academics, and activists who are interested in the intersection of AI and human rights to share their knowledge, experiences, and perspectives.

This event is part of the Bingham Centre's Public and Youth Engagement programme, which is supported by the Sybil Shine Memorial Trust.
