The Alan Turing Institute - Research Assistant, Data Sharing for Human Rights Applications

Closing date: 
Thursday, 21 July 2022

The Alan Turing Institute

The Institute has a focused area of work on AI for Human Rights, Equality and Inclusion: One theme of AI for human rights considers and applies a range of participatory and principles of algorithmic accountability approaches, expanding the solution space to support equality and inclusion across the AI lifecycle including data collection and sharing, and in the design, development and deployment of data science and AI methods.

One of the application areas includes a programme of research activities in the development and application of data science and AI methods to assist modern day slavery challenges and related policy areas (including but not limited to migration, conflict, refugees, gender-based violence), informed by stakeholders. The modern slavery specific work is supported through a mixture of internal and external partnerships: The Institute is a partner in the Modern Slavery and Human Rights Policy Evidence Centre (herein Modern Slavery PEC) and also funded through and works with the Institute’s AI for Science and Government (ASG) Programme, Defence & Security Programme and Finance Programme, collaborating with colleagues at other Universities (e.g. Cambridge Technology and Trust Initiative) and organisations ranging from the UN, NGOs, Global Partnership for AI, the private and public sector.
