Business enterprises are increasingly recognized as entities responsible for upholding human rights. This progress has been driven by international frameworks such as the UN Global Compact and the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. However, the growing integration of artificial intelligence (AI) across various business sectors raises questions about how existing corporate human rights responsibilities should be interpreted in relation to these technologies.

What implications do human rights have for the design and development of AI solutions? Can you provide examples of adverse impacts resulting from the use of AI on human rights? What measures should companies implement to prevent human rights violations during the development and deployment of AI?

Moderated by Dr. Caitlin Corrigan, Executive Director of the Institute of Ethics in Artificial Intelligence, we will hear from practitioners, representatives of NGOs and scholars who will shed light on this topic. Join us for this insightful conversation, scheduled to take place on July 18th, 2023, in person at Hochschule für Politik, Richard-Wagner-Straße 1, 80333 Munich, Room B.158 (TUM Think Tank). We invite you to participate and contribute to this discussion!
