Bots for Good

Wrigley, S. (Speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentation typesOral presentation

Description

We often hear about the ways that, in the future, bots are going to make it much harder to ensure that our fundamental rights are respected, particularly in the field of data protection law. In this talk, however, I argued that although it is possible, this conclusion is not inevitable. First, the technology of today is already at the stage where bots can be used to help protect fundamental rights and that this potential will only grow. Secondly, bots are not antithetical to fundamental rights and that it is possible to design them in a way which compliments (or even reinforces) rights. Finally, bots can be used by controllers to help implement their obligations, as well as by data subjects (or, indeed, natural persons writ large) to help enforce their rights.
