‘Utterly brilliant‘ - Helena Kennedy | 'A brilliant expose’ - Roger McNamee

In this urgent polemic, leading barrister Susie Alegre explores the ways in which artificial intelligence threatens our fundamental human rights – including the rights to life, liberty and fair trial; the right to private and family life; and the right to free expression – and how we protect those rights.

Touching on the many profound ethical dilemmas posed by emerging technologies, and full of fascinating case studies, 'Human Rights, Robot Wrongs' is a rallying cry for humanity in the age of AI.
