Artificial Police Agents: Looking Awry

13th October 2016

We now live in a world saturated with artificial agency, even though it is difficult to identify the agents. Police intelligence is increasingly supported by big data analytics and machine learning, e.g. in the form of crime mapping and new types of criminal profiling. This generates new issues around opacity and transparency that are key to the safety and security of individual citizens. In this talk, Mireille Hildebrandt will discuss the implications for privacy, non-discrimination and the presumption of innocence as well as the methodological pitfalls that plague the employment of computational optimization.
