An open dialogue with leading AI and human rights experts.

About this Event

In 2019, the Montreal Institute for Genocide and Human Rights Studies at Concordia University launched the Human Rights and Artificial Intelligence Forum. The event convened thought leaders, officials and experts in technology and human rights to discuss the implications of new technology for global affairs.

In 2021, MIGS is scaling up the event in collaboration with Global Affairs Canada, and the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, Ministère des Relations internationales et de la Francophonie, under the patronage of the Canadian Commission for UNESCO. Panel discussions will cover such topics as disinformation in public health, elections, online hate, ethics, AI governance, the United Nations and global cooperation.

The event will take place over four days and will feature keynote addresses and panel discussions from leading global experts working at the intersection of AI and human rights.

En 2019, l’Institut Montréalais d’études sur le génocide et les droits de la personne de l’Université Concordia a mis sur pied le Forum sur l’intelligence artificielle et les droits de la personne. Notre but était de rassembler des membres de la société civile, des politiques et des experts en technologies et droits de la personne afin de discuter des impacts de nouvelles technologies sur les affaires internationales.

En 2021, le MIGS voit plus grand en collaborant avec l’Ambassade des Pays-Bas au Canada, le ministère des Relations internationales du Québec et la Commission Canadienne pour l’UNESCO. Nous parlerons de thèmes tels que la désinformation, la santé publique et les élections, la haine en ligne et la liberté d’expression, l’éthique et la gouvernance l’IA, les Nations Unies et la coopération internationale. Le forum servira de tremplin pour de futurs partenariat entre des professeurs, des membres de la société civile, des Nations Unies et du secteur privé.

Cet évènement se déroulera sur trois jours et comprendra des panels de discussion avec des experts internationaux.
