Concluding Curated #3: Digital Technologies and Human Rights

As this Curated series draws to a close, we reflect on what it emphasises as regards human rights preparedness for digitalisation.

COVID-19 arrayed the prospects and challenges that come with digital technologies. Going forward the development of healthcare standards with such technologies calls for a mindful approach that recognises the digital divide between countries.



Human Rights in the Era of Automated Decision Making and Predictive Technologies

Advances in Natural Language Processing and machine learning have made it possible to design predictive models that can be used to assist judicial proceedings. Such technologies transform the legal profession; guaranteeing that this does not disrupt the rule of law, access to justice, fair trial and contestability is a substantial challenge.
