Artificial Intelligence: ARTICLE 19 calls for protection of freedom of expression in the debate

ARTICLE 19 submitted evidence to the United Kingdom’s House of Lords Select Committee on Artificial Intelligence on 6 September 2017. The submission stresses the need to critically evaluate the impact of Artificial Intelligence and automated decision making systems on human rights. It also calls for deeper understanding of various ways in which these technologies embed values and bias, thereby strengthening or sometimes hindering the exercise of these rights, particularly  freedom of expression.

The overarching recommendation is for the development and use of AI to be subject to the minimum requirement of respecting, promoting, and protecting international human rights standards.
