The relationship between human beings and AI appears to be on the cusp of foundational change: until recently the human ability to control technology was unquestioned, but now the trend suggests a declining power differential and the possibility of an inverse power relationship soon. AI is poised to exert increasing influence over human opportunities and activities, such that human beings are increasingly under ‘the loop’. This paper explores the impact that the inversion of power between human beings and their technologies has on the protection of fundamental human rights.
