Human factors, and ethical, societal, legal and organisational aspects of using Artificial Intelligence in support of Law Enforcement

Specific Challenge

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. This fact is generally correct, and it becomes extremely important in the security domain. Social engagement has to be part of the overall effort to fortify our resilience across institutions, civil society and industry, and at all levels - local, national, European. There is a need to find ways to build a human-centred and socially driven AI, by, amongst other, fostering the engagement of citizens and improving their perception of security. Possible side effects of AI technological solutions in the domain of security need to be considered carefully, both from the point of view of citizens and from the point of view of Law Enforcement.


Proposals under this topic 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. Points of view and concerns of citizens as well as of Law Enforcement should be tackled. Based on this analysis, proposals should suggest approaches that are needed to overcome these concerns and that stimulate the acceptance of AI tools by civil society and by Law Enforcement. Proposals should lead to solutions developed in compliance with European societal values, fundamental rights and applicable legislation, including in the area of privacy, protection of personal data and free movement of persons. The societal dimension should be at the core of the proposed activities. Proposals should be submitted by consortia involving relevant security practitioners, civil society organisations as well as Social Sciences and Humanities experts.
