Quinn Emanuel Counsel Lucas Bento to Speak At the American Society of International Law


The continued development of AI promises numerous economic, social, medical, and security solutions. The use of AI technology in business, government, and civil society contexts and the possible replacement of human decision-makers raise important questions about whether current policies, practices, and methods to protect human rights are fit for the purpose. While the potential of AI is uncontested, accountability and compliance questions have been widely debated, including the human rights issues it may raise. After analyzing the jurisdictional questions of AI in the cross-border context, our panel of distinguished experts will discuss the needed safeguards to protect human rights in public and private sector uses of big data and AI.
