The Commission’s proposed AI Act aims to address the risks of certain uses of artificial intelligence and to establish a legal framework for the trustworthy deployment of AI. In the context of migration and border control, the Act raises significant concerns, which must be addressed in ongoing negotiations within Parliament, and in future campaigning and advocacy. Join us on Monday 16 May to discuss how AI is already used in the migration control context, and some of the key amendments that must be tabled to adequately protect the rights of people on the move.
Monday 16 May, 16:00 GMT/17:00 CET
Two days before the European Parliament's deadline to table amendments to the AI Act, Statewatch and EDRi will be hosting a webinar to discuss vital changes that must be made to the text to foreground issues of fundamental rights in onward negotiations.
Statewatch will be presenting the findings of a new briefing, published to be published in the week starting 9 May, covering how artificial intelligence is already used for migration and border, and how this affects people and their rights.
The panel will be moderated by Sarah Chander, senior policy advisor for EDRi.
