The protection of human rights should be front and centre of any decision to implement AI-based systems regardless of whether they’re used as corporate tools such as recruitment or in areas such as law enforcement.

And unless sufficient safeguards are in place to protect human rights, there should be a moratorium on the sale of AI systems and those that fail to meet international human rights laws should be banned.
