Coordination and support action (CSA): Human factors, and ethical, societal, legal and organisational aspects of using Artificial Intelligence in support of Law Enforcement
Deadline: 27 August 2020
Artificial Intelligence (AI) refers to any machine or algorithm that is capable of observing its environment, learning, and that, based on the knowledge and experience gained, can take intelligent actions or propose decisions.
Advantages of AI are numerous. However, the lack of transparency of AI technologies and tools complicates their acceptance by users and citizens. Ethical and secure-by-design algorithms are necessary to build trust in this technology, but a broader engagement of civil society on the values to be embedded in AI and the directions for future development is crucial.
Proposals under this topic, part of the Artificial Intelligence and security: providing a balanced assessment of opportunities and challenges for Law Enforcement in Europe call, should provide an exhaustive analysis of human, social and organisational aspects related to the use of AI tools, including gender related aspects, in support of Law Enforcement, both for cybersecurity and in the fight against crime, including cybercrime, and terrorism. Proposals should foresee resources for clustering activities with other projects funded under this call to identify synergies and best practices.
The Commission considers that proposals requesting a contribution from the EU of around EUR 1.5 million would allow this specific challenge to be addressed appropriately. Nonetheless, this does not preclude submission and selection of proposals requesting other amounts.
Eligibility and admissibility conditions can be found in the Web Page. This topic requires the active involvement of at least 3 Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs) from at least 3 different EU or Associated countries.
Deadline: 27 August 2020, 17:00 Brussels time (10:00 Colombian time)
