AI and Privacy: Challenges and Ways Forward in the Global South
12 June, 2019 at 8:00 AM - 14 June, 2019 at 5:00 PM EDT
(Tunis, Tunisia) The event will take place on Friday, 14 June during RightsCon. AI has been recognized as an enabler of the SDGs supporting States in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda.
However, the deployment of AI in the Global South faces challenges and may bring about particular risks to the enjoyment of human rights, including the right to privacy.
The roundtable will map challenges to the right to privacy brought about by AI in the Global South, addressing questions such as: what legal and institutional safeguards need to be in place to reign in privacy risks? How can data-driven approaches augment social and economic development while protecting the privacy of all individuals? How can local, community-driven solutions be supported? It also will connect key actors and identify the next steps to be taken.
UN Global Pulse is happy to participate in the discussions and present its ongoing efforts to advance data protection, privacy and ethics across the UN.
