HumanRightsSome countries are starting to allow immigration decisions to be made by machines programmed to apply to law to specific fact situations. That includes immigration law. Is this a violation of a person’s human rights? Or a way to produce better decisions and reduce the biases and inefficiencies that make life tougher for immigrants in many jurisdictions? This panel will explore how different countries are approaching AI and immigration law and look at the advantages and disadvantages associated with making immigration decisions with an algorithm.
