Professor Thomasen is offering up to two supervised research paper project spots for credit for 2L and 3L students in the winter term (with some planning to begin in the fall) focusing on the intersection of artificial intelligence, human rights, inclusion and democracy.

The successful students will be invited to Ottawa (*at the discretion of Global Affairs) to present their research to a forum including peers from across the country, public officials, and stakeholders from the private tech sector. Creativity and interdisciplinary research will be encouraged in this supervised research project!
Students interested in this opportunity are asked to complete the Application Form, linked below, by November 7, 2017, 12:00pm.
