Ana Valdivia was invited to present how Europe is using Artificial Intelligence (AI) for border control. In this talk, she explained how the outcome of algorithmic solutions based on biometric data is more important that migrants' voices. Frictions between opacity and transparency are also present in the border regime. Little is known about the private actors that are developing these AI-based technologies. Migrants and asylum-seekers are impacted by these solutions, so there is a need to investigate who is developing them, how much money is invested, and if there exist human right violations at the EU border.
