Smart devices surveilling our lives. Artificial intelligence technology steering our behaviour. Care robots hindering human contact. Does this sound terrifying? Inevitable? It does not have to be. Time for a wake-up call.
The report Human Right in the Robot Age demonstrates that these technologies have a positive and negative impact on human rights. Many fundamental rights are at stake: the right to privacy, human dignity, ownership, safety and liability, freedom of expression, the prohibition of discrimination, access to justice and the right to a fair trial.
After an interactive presentation, the Rathenau Instituut announces the launch of a blog on Human Rights in the Robot Age.
