Artificial Intelligence Devices and Children’s Rights
Updated: Jan 21, 2021
The aim of the “Share the knowledge” initiative is to create a diverse, inclusive, and participatory knowledge network on human rights. Within this segment, we share valuable and interesting academic papers. Readers have the chance to deepen human rights-related topics and to get some ideas for further studies.
We are honoured to share the academic paper of Monique Monarini, a second-year HRG student. The paper was submitted as the final paper for the course of Digital Citizenship and Law, on 30th June 2020. In her work, Monique explores the emerging market of toys using artificial intelligence and she focuses on their implications on children’s rights. In the introduction, Monique presents the legal international framework that protects children’s rights. The right to privacy and protection of personal data are particularly under her scrutiny. In the second part, she provides some concrete examples of the use and misuse of smart toys. In fact, they could affect children’s development, creativity, and social integration, influence the relationship with parents, and increase socio-economic inequalities. In her conclusion, Monique highlights the need for more explicit international regulations to effectively protect children’s rights.
The following work is the intellectual property of Monique Munarini and any attempt to pass her work off as your own may have academic and legal consequences.
Please, note that the “Share your knowledge” initiative aims to create a collaborative and enriching knowledge-network for students. Papers published on our website are not peer reviewed and therefore do not qualify as valid sources for academic purposes (similar to how Wikipedia is not a valid source). All papers published under this initiative have received a grade no less than 27/30 from the grading professor.
