Description:

Algorithmic Policing and Surveillance in Canada: The Defining Role of Reliability, Necessity, and Proportionality in 21st Century Oversight

_________

New research by the Citizen Lab and International Human Rights Program at University of Toronto documents a growing trend in law enforcement in Canada towards the use of algorithmic policing technology, including automated surveillance and "predictive policing". This talk focuses on how the use of algorithmic surveillance threatens fundamental freedoms protected under the Charter and international human rights law. The authors of the report, To Surveil and Predict: A Human Rights Analysis of Algorithmic Policing in Canada, discuss what oversight must look like in the 21st century, and the principles of reliability, necessity, and proportionality in law reform ahead.
