Maurice Blackburn is grateful for the opportunity to make a submission to the Australian Human Rights Commission in response to questions raised in the Human Rights and Technology Discussion Paper (“the Discussion Paper”).
The Discussion Paper identifies the new and significant ways in which AI interacts with fundamental human rights. Maurice Blackburn notes the importance of developing a sophisticated regulatory response to the development of artificial intelligence (AI).
New technologies have a profound potential to transform lives and communities is both positive and negative ways. We share the AHRC’s goal of implementing appropriate measures to ensure that the benefits of these technologies are felt by vulnerable and historically disenfranchised groups rather than an erosion of their fundamental human rights.
