SAILS AI and Human Rights Symposium is a one-day conference bringing together academic, practice and industry leaders. The focus of the symposium will be broad, exploring current and future impacts of technological change on human rights with an emphasis on the ethical dimensions of disruptive technologies. Participants will discuss discrimination and bias in algorithms, freedom of expression, autonomous weapons and AI personhood, among other topics, exploring how technological change does or could affect human rights, with an emphasis on the ethical dimensions of disruptive technologies.
Based at Stanford Law School, participants from multiple academic and professional backgrounds will have the opportunity to engage in these issues through a cross-disciplinary approach, involving active participation and creative learning. Panelists and moderators with different backgrounds and with different perspectives on the topics have been selected to foster discussion on competing viewpoints on multifaceted issues, addressing different dimensions of an issue. For example, the panel on AI and Warfare will likely include a speaker from a military background, an academic speaker and a speaker from a human rights NGO, who all provide a different perspective on the technology and the use of AI and how it affects human rights.
Participants from all academic and professional backgrounds are welcome but registration is required, since the primary goal of the symposium is to appreciate the vast scope of human rights implications of AI, understand differing perspectives across sectors and disciplines, and identify opportunities for further research and collaboration.
