What to do? Almost everything about us, is happening without us

Robin Allen QC & Dee Masters

In this talk Robin Allen QC & Dee Masters will discuss their recent work mapping the way current equality and employment laws apply to the use of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in the workplace, the gaps and consider the essential next steps. 

About the speakers

Robin Allen QC and Dee Masters are practising barristers, based in Cloisters  Chambers, London, specialising in equality and human rights law. For many years they have advised a very wide range of clients in relation to ways to avoid discrimination, or to bring or defend claims, concerned with equality law.    

They set up the AI Law Consultancy in 2018 because they were increasingly aware of the potential dangers in the rapid proliferation of Artificial Intelligence systems and associated new technologies and the need for an ethical and clear regulatory framework to enable the best use of such systems.  

The AI Law Consultancy has worked with a very broad range of clients, from private business to the Trades Union Congress, the Legal Education Foundation, Council of Europe, and Equinet - the European Network of Equality Bodies.  Their work has been widely referenced including by the European Commission, the UK Committee on Standards in Public Life, and the UK Government’s Centre for Data Ethics and Innovation.  

They work internationally and have conducted litigation at every level, and on every ground protected under EU law, including cases in the Court of Justice of the European Union and the European Court of Human Rights. They have also lectured and trained jurists across Europe on issues relating to equality.
