Automated facial recognition, contact tracing apps, and digital identity initiatives are on the rise. Taking examples from the UK, EU, and Australia, our event will be exploring the implications of these new technologies for migrants and people of colour. In particular, we will be exploring the ways in which these technologies risk perpetuating racist outcomes in society.
