The human right to democratic control of artificial intelligence
Rapid advances in artificial intelligence (AI) will accelerate the concentration of authoritarian power and increase systemic inequality and discrimination unless there is democratic control of AI. Democratic control of AI requires control by citizens' assemblies, decision-making bodies comprised of randomly-selected individuals who hear from experts and have the power to determine AI law and policies. Citizens' assemblies have a proven record of success in securing democratic control of public policy-making in Ireland, Iceland, Canada, Australia, and elsewhere. This report is a submission to the Australian Human Rights Commission in response to the Commission's call for comments on its "Human Rights and Technology: Discussion Paper."
