What will I learn ?

In this Interactive Workshop on Immigration and automation we will:

– explore how AI and algorithms are presently being used and likely to be used in UK and elsewhere
review an overview of how algorithms work
– discuss the potential harms involved at the individual and societal levels
– summarise legal strategies, resources and best practices
– participate in a group exercise on a realistic case study

You will also get access to a guide summarising the key points of the workshop and documenting the answers to your questions.

This workshop is brought to you by Meg Foulkes, Director of The Justice Programme and Cedric Lombion, our Data & Innovation Lead.
