The increasingly pervasive use of technology in our everyday lives has triggered debate on how new and disruptive technologies—such as artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, 3D printing, internet of things (IoT), 5G, blockchain, quantum computing, autonomous vehicles, biotechnology, and nanotechnology—should be managed and governed.
Deliberate investment in new human rights-based approaches to disruptive technologies is urgently needed to ensure that human rights are not adversely impacted and that we realize a once-in-a-generation opportunity to harness massive advances in technology for the public good.
However, as business, government, and civil society make progress in addressing the human rights impacts of disruptive technology, it has become increasingly clear that one supremely important constituency needs to be more directly engaged—the “non-technology” companies integrating AI into their business operations, strategies, and plans.
Join BSR for a breakfast discussion where we share our insights from recent human rights due diligence exploring how disruptive technologies are being deployed in “non-technology” industries and summarize the key points of a framework for the responsible use of technology recently developed with the World Economic Forum.
