Professor Kristen Thomasen supervised research paper projects by Nimisha Dubey (JD ’19) and Kiran Kingra (JD ’20) that focused on the intersection of artificial intelligence, human rights, inclusion and democracy. Nimisha’s presentation was centred on a rights-based approach to combating climate change and Kiran’s presentation focused on AI and privacy.  These papers contributed to the Global Affairs’ (Government of Canada) Digital Inclusion Lab and were presented in Ottawa on April 18, 2018 at the Artificial Intelligence and Human Rights Student Symposium to a forum of peers from across the country, public officials, and stakeholders from the private tech sector.
