The COVID-19 pandemic has forced sudden transformation in many sectors of the global community, turning the world upside down. Everything has been impacted, not excluding the education sector, which has experienced some unforeseen changes in many parts of the world. The sudden transition to online pedagogy as a result of COVID-19 in developing countries has exposed some inequalities and challenges, as well as benefits. Winner of the Elsevier Atlas Award in December 2020, this article contributes to SDGs 3 and 4 by proposing suggestions so that the challenges presented by the new approach can be mitigated while we come to terms with the disruptions introduced by COVID-19 to the education sector.

The article examines the way in which artificial intelligence based decision making technologies assess individuals within society to reach a decision. These tools often have elements embedded within them which result in a decision which is disadvantageous to groups who have historically experienced discrimination, disadvantage, disempowerment and marginalisation including (but not limited to) people with disabilities. Contributing to SDGs 3, 4, 9, 10 and 16, the authors recommend that legislature should respond accordingly by identifying contexts in which it is mandatory to employ human decision-makers and by enacting the relevant legislation.
