This talk will discuss some of the key themes from We, the Data: Human Rights in the Digital Age, which is a new book published by 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.
