Wendy H. Wong: We, the Data - Human Rights in the Digital Age

Research seminar with Wendy H. Wong, Professor of Political Science and Principal's Research Chair at the University of British Columbia. In this talk Wendy H. Wong discusses some of the key themes from her new book We, the Data: Human Rights in the Digital Age, (MIT Press). Human rights are one of the major political innovations of the 20th century. Their emergence after World War II and global uptake promised a new world in which human autonomy, community, dignity, and equality could be protected. Datafication, however, poses some unique challenges for our human rights framework because they are “sticky” and ubiquitous in emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI). The talk focuses on five takeaways from the book that ties AI and data to human rights.
