Clare Curran, the Minister responsible for Digital Media, has expressed her concern over how companies, like Google and Facebook, are using the data they collect on their users and how this usage may be in breach of the user’s human rights.  Clare Curran also stated how these concerns are shared by the digital rights working group, made up of seven countries including New Zealand.

This month, Curran also opened the University of Otago’s Artificial Intelligence and Public Policy Centre. It has been tasked by the New Zealand government to assess the future implications of, and policy options relating to, AI in New Zealand.
