The first session of the symposium examined the potential uses of AI-enabled technologies to supercharge surveillance, suppress dissent, enable human rights violations, collect personal data, and impose social control around the world. The panel convened legal and technological experts to address the role of international law, technical standards bodies, and organizations like the OECD to address this growing challenge and explore how democratic nations can use legal tools to promote responsible technology and counter malign uses of AI-enabled systems.
