Artificial Intelligence (AI) is now a part of our lives dominated by the reliance on technology and not limited to a future proponent of science fiction. AI is the result of a modern world driven by data. A data driven society which feeds on the need for the solution to data to manipulate and predict the response of the individual. The rise of AI moves beyond the fundamental protection of privacy to a much broader sense of the ‘unseen’ nature of how data is used with AI technology. AI technology which includes facial recognition, autonomous vehicles, search engines, translation tools and automated weaponized drones. This article will look at the fundamental problems of the use of AI which reinforces discrimination and the threat and the impact of AI on the protection of fundamental human rights and the current protection from the threat of AI under international human rights law.
