AI for Human Rights

Project Scope

AI technologies offer powerful new tools for human rights investigations, documentation, and policies. Seizing these opportunities will require careful, proactive collaboration across human rights practitioners and scientific communities in academia, government, and the private sector. As part of the AI2 initiative, the Scientific Responsibility, Human Rights and Law Program aims to build the infrastructure of networks, knowledge, and relationships that lead to innovative partnerships. This infrastructure for human rights-led AI collaborations will develop and sustain new applications of AI for human rights while also preventing harmful societal impacts. Initial activities will include convening interdisciplinary dialogues on existing human rights concerns that are well suited for AI-based solutions, forming project teams to address those initial concerns, and developing a pilot training program on AI, ethics, and human rights for the members of those teams.
