In this paper, we (1) argue that the international human rights framework provides the most promising set of standards for ensuring that AI systems are ethical in their design, development and deployment, and (2) sketch the basic contours of a comprehensive governance framework, which we call ‘human rights-centred design, deliberation and oversight’, for ensuring that AI can be relied upon to operate in ways that will not violate human rights.
