The potential role of artificial intelligence in public security
The challenges posed by this technology in areas such as disinformation and cryptocurrencies will be addressed at a conference on 12 May in Paris
The challenges that generative artificial intelligence in public security poses for law enforcement agencies in the field of public security will be the focus of the second conference organised by ‘Notiones’, a European project for the creation of a network of security and intelligence services professionals. The event, entitled ‘Generative Artificial Intelligence and other challenges for law enforcement agencies‘ will take place on 12 May at the Châteauform’ City Monceau Rio venue in Paris. It is aimed at practitioners, policy makers, academics and industry in the fields of intelligence and security.
Today, the growing use of cryptocurrencies or bitcoin for malicious purposes has raised alarm bells in security systems, with the need to identify breaches and major threats. Among the main challenges of digitalisation for the period 2021-2027 is cybersecurity. One of the main challenges we face, and which will be addressed during the conference, is cyberterrorism, which will be explained by Shlomo Shpiro, professor at the Bar Ilan University Europe Institute, in his lecture: ‘Terrorist behaviour’. Likewise, advances in the development of tools to prevent the actions and financing of terrorism will be addressed by CTC and Trace Project.
Challenges and solutions for artificial intelligence in public security
Other current issues to be discussed at the conference include the emergence of generative artificial intelligence tools such as Chat GPT, or you.com, which are causing a revolution in terms of their use and possible impact on disinformation. The concept of generative artificial intelligence will be discussed in depth, followed by a session on monitoring emerging innovations for law enforcement agencies by Giulia Venturi (Z&P), and on the use of technological tools for law enforcement agencies by Eva Škruba (EATCDA).
There will also be a session on the challenges and solutions of artificial intelligence for disinformation detection by Professor Choras from the University of Science and Technology, Bydgoszcz (PBS). Some of these technological solutions for detecting criminal content on the internet/online will be shown during the interventions of those responsible for the Vigilant or Fermi projects.
‘Notiones’ and Zabala Innovation
‘Notiones’ aims to establish a network of security and intelligence professionals. Through its creation, it seeks to facilitate the exchange of new and emerging technologies, as well as to support the needs of the security and intelligence services of the Member States and the Autonomous Communities for the future programming of security research.
To achieve this, the project, coordinated by the Tecnalia Research & Innovation Foundation, has a consortium of 29 partners from 21 different countries that includes all the profiles for this network: professionals from the security and intelligence services, military, civilian, financial, judicial and local, national and international law enforcement agencies.
Notiones is a Horizon 2020 project in the field of public security. Throughout the five-year duration of the project, which starts in September 2021, information sessions have been organised, as well as the first edition of the conference with the aim of expanding the network and involving new organisations.
Zabala Innovation accompanies Tecnalia in the management and administration of the project and has the support of its Dissemination and Communication teams in Spain and France to make the organisation of the event in Paris possible.
Registration for the conference is open until 28 April.
