Artificial intelligence and other forms of algorithmic decision-making exert significant influence over nearly all aspects of modern life, but our understanding of both the impact of these technologies and how to regulate them is only developing. This event will discuss the impact of artificial intelligence on different areas of life, with a particular focus on data justice and immigration decisions. A new proposal for algorithmic accountability developed by the Human Rights, Big Data & Technology project will then be presented, discussing how human rights can provide an overall framework through which to address accountability across the full algorithmic life cycle, while also incorporating existing technological solutions.
