March 26, 2019 HRBDT

On 26 March the Human Rights, Big Data and Technology Project hosted a panel discussion at The Royal Society on “Algorithmic Accountability and Human Rights”.  The panel members included Dr Lina Dencik (Co-Director Data Justice Lab), Professor Lorna McGregor (Director HRBDT Project), Petra Molnar (University of Toronto) and Dr Daragh Murray (Deputy Work Stream Lead, HRBDT Project).

The panelists discussed the impact of artificial intelligence on different areas of life, with a particular focus on data justice and immigration decisions.  Lorna and Daragh went on to present a new proposal for algorithmic accountability and discussed 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.
