Statement in Support of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights’ Call to Regulate AI

Today we sent a statement of support to United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Volker Türk, based on his recent comments about the need for a regulatory framework for AI which centres and prioritizes human rights. The High Commissioners proposal are well aligned to AUDRI’s 9 Digital Principles.

A diverse and influential group of digital rights and equality activists, academics, researchers and human rights organizations from around the world, including organizations from the USA, Kenya, India, Chile, Indonesia and Albania have added their names to the statement. Each doing so in the understanding that all citizens of the global digital ecosystem, no matter who they are or where they live, deserve equal rights to safety, freedom, and dignity. 

We hope that our combined voices add weight to Mr Türk’s efforts to bring governments and companies together to discuss our shared digital future, and take advantage of the  Global Digital Compact as an immediate opportunity to start this process.
