2021 AI:Artificial intelligence threatens human rights? The United Nations rarely calls for a halt, pointing directly at the abuse of technology.It is reported that on September 15 local time, Michelle Bachelet, the United Nations High Commissioner for human rights, called for a moratorium on the sale and use of artificial intelligence (AI) systems that threaten human rights until appropriate safeguards are in place to ensure that technology will not be abused.

 

According to the report, Bachelet said: “we can’t afford to continue to catch up with the AI system – allowing the use of artificial intelligence without borders or supervision, and dealing with almost inevitable human rights problems afterwards. AI applications that are not in line with international human rights law must be prohibited.” she added: “The power of AI to serve people is undeniable, but the ability of AI to violate human rights on a large scale under almost invisible circumstances is undeniable. For the benefit of all of us, action needs to be taken to set up a human rights barrier for the use of AI.”

 

Then the UN Human Rights Office issued a report warning of the risks of AI technology and stressed that although AI can be used as a force for good, it may also have a disastrous impact if used irresponsibly. The report said: “The complexity of data environment, algorithm and model behind the development and operation of AI system, as well as the private confidentiality of government and private actors, are all factors that undermine the public’s understanding of the impact of AI system on human rights and society.”

 

The United Nations is also concerned that AI’s ability to make analysis and automatic decision-making, as well as its other uses, threaten countless human rights. The United Nations human rights office warned that AI would affect “the right to health, the right to education, freedom of movement, freedom of peaceful assembly and association, and freedom of expression.” Bachelet said: “AI systems are used to determine who gets public services and who has the opportunity to be recruited to a job. Of course, they also affect the information people see and share online.”

The United Nations Human Rights Office pointed out that there have been some dangerous mistakes, and there are many cases of individuals being deprived of social security benefits or arrested due to facial recognition defects. In addition, AI systems usually collect, share, merge and analyze data in an opaque way, so the collected information may be leaked or outdated, or even discriminatory.

 

As for the impact of AI abuse, Bachelet stressed: “the risk of discrimination associated with AI driven decision-making – decisions that can change, define or damage human life – is too real. This is why it is necessary to systematically evaluate and monitor the impact of AI system to identify and mitigate human rights risks.”Artificial intelligence threatens human rights?
