Forum on Migration: Surviving Migration in the Age of Artificial Intelligence

November 29, 2023
1 P.M. - 2 P.M.
St. Francis College

Robo-dogs patrolling the border; 7,000 foreign students deported because of a faulty algorithm; surveillance drones sweeping the sky instead of assisting with sinking refugee boats. What do all of these examples have in common? In each case, migration regimes were augmented by high-risk border technologies.

Join the conversation with Petra Molnar on how technology impacts people's lives on the move — and how we can build a different world.

Petra Molnar is a lawyer and anthropologist trying to understand how new technologies are changing the way people cross borders. She co-runs the Refugee Law Lab at York University and is a faculty associate at the Berkman Klein Centre for Internet & Society at Harvard University. Her first book, The Walls Have Eyes: Surviving Migration in the Age of Artificial Intelligence, is coming out in the spring of 2024.
