  • 4/13 - Jay Aronson, Director of the Center for Human Rights Science at Carnegie Mellon University

Title: The Promise and Peril of AI, Machine Learning, and Data Analysis in Human Rights Practice

Abstract: In this talk I will introduce Carnegie Mellon University's Center for Human Rights Science (CHRS); describe our work at the intersection of machine learning, computer vision, data analysis, and human rights; and present a case study on reconstructing citizen killings by security force personnel during the 2014 Euromaidan protests in Kiev, Ukraine. I will highlight the value of computer scientists partnering with community groups and human rights practitioners to advance social welfare, and encourage computer scientists to use a harm reduction approach (pioneered in the field of public health) in all of their work.
