Automated facial recognition, contact tracing apps, and digital identity initiatives are on the rise. Taking examples from the UK, EU, and Australia, our recent event with the Portal Collective explored the implications of these new technologies for migrants and people of colour. In particular, the event looked at the ways in which these technologies risk perpetuating racist outcomes in society.
The event was held on Tuesday 22nd of July 2020 and was chaired by Yassmin Abdel-Magied from the Portal Collective. The discussion is available to watch in full below.
