In this session, we will explore opportunities in using machine learning for advancing human rights. The first 20 minutes of the session will be used to showcase examples of applications of machine learning for human rights and outlining some of the opportunity areas for the human rights movement, drawing on the joint experience of Amnesty International and Element AI. The presenters have, collectively, extensive experience in human rights, machine learning, and developing technological applications for human rights. The remainder of the session will be run in a 'world cafe' format with table conversations around different sub-topics. Tables will discuss specific opportunity areas, risks associated with using machine learning for human rights purposes, as well as constraints that are limiting the exploitation of existing opportunities. Each table will have a conversation lead from a different organisation, in order to bring diverse experiences to the discussion.
