Raoul Wallenberg Talks #1 – What does AI have to do with human rights?

Welcome to Raoul Wallenberg Talks – an international lecture series on human rights.
Our first speaker is the digital expert Per Axbom, he will talk about one of the hottest topics of today – how the expansion of artificial intelligence (AI) around the world will affect those people that are already vulnerable. AI is promising given the issues that the technology allows us to resolve. But rarely is the potential harm in it discussed. Are we programming our algorithms with our own pre assumptions? Is there potential of a digital colonialism imprinted in the code?
