In light of the continuing and developing situation with Covid-19 (Coronavirus) in the UK, and having considered the available information and advice from the Government and health authorities, the decision has been taken to postpone this event.

The Legal Innovation Team.

Rob Booth, the social affairs correspondent for the Guardian, will outline the Guardian’s global and domestic investigation into how the tech revolution is transforming welfare systems worldwide while penalizing the most vulnerable. He will discuss how Artificial Intelligence decision-making is being developed by UK government departments and public authorities with limited discussion of its use and the ramifications for transparency, redress and oversight.

The Guardian investigation involved publishing a series of articles looking at how government departments and public authorities in (among others) Britain, the United States, Australia and India, are radically reshaping the delivery of social security and other public services behind closed doors.

The presentation will be followed by a panel discussion and Q and A with local academics.

Jointly sponsored by the Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission and Legal Innovation Centre, Ulster University.
