Hosted by Access, the first ever Silicon Valley Human Rights conference was held on 25-26 October 2011 in San Francisco. The conference examined how the human rights and high tech sectors can better plan for and manage the human rights implications of new technologies. It brought information and communications technology (ICT) entrepreneurs, executives, and engineers together with policy analysts, human rights specialists and charitable organizations in the field.
Citizen Lab’s Research Manager Masashi Crete-Nishihata participated in the conference, as did members of ASL19 – an Iranian human rights and advocacy group with whom the Citizen Lab collaborates.
