SOLM240 Artificial Intelligence, Human Rights and Migration (B21)

Module Description

Artificial-Intelligence is constantly in the media, both praised and vilified. But what is AI and how do public-authorities use it? This course examines public authorities' use of AI in border, immigration and asylum decision making in the UK and worldwide. Taking a case study approach using recent and pending court cases we will analyse the issues from a human rights perspective: fair procedures, non-discrimination and protection of privacy.
