There is a great connection between Artificial Intelligence and Human rights. This connection hinges on the risks and opportunities of Artificial Intelligence on human rights. An ongoing debate on whether Artificial Intelligence affects humans positively or negatively is the inspiration for the research. The present research focuses on a comparative analysis of the risks and opportunities of Artificial Intelligence on human rights and the measures that can be taken to guard against the erosion of Human rights by Artificial Intelligent systems. The study continued with the analysis of a series of interviews with a whole range of experts in human rights and Artificial Intelligence which included Artificial Intelligence ethicists, experts in the software industry, and human rights lawyers. The research concludes with a set of recommendations for builders of Algorithms on how they can reduce bias in Artificial Intelligence systems and the general public as a whole since Artificial Intelligence is part of us and has come to stay.
