Neurorights: Human Rights Guidelines for Neurotechnology and AI

Friday, January 29, 2021 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Rafael Yuste will discuss the proposal from the Morningside group (Yuste et al., Nature 2017) to add new human rights to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to protect mental privacy, personal identity, personal agency, equal access to cognitive augmentation, and protection from algorithmic biases. He will also discuss the proposal for a “technocratic oath” and current advocacy efforts for neuro-rights in the US and abroad that create frameworks for the ethical use of artificial intelligence and neurotechnology.

Speaker: Rafael Yuste, Professor of Biological Sciences, Columbia University
Moderator: Lara J. Nettelfield, Senior Lecturer, Institute for the Study of Human Rights, Columbia University
