Stakeholders Policy Labs

popAI envisages the organisation of Six Stakeholder Policy Labs to facilitate exchange between relevant LEAs and related experts. The goal is to develop ideas for smart policies and test the solutions to identified controversies in experimental models.

ECAS Crowdsourcing platform

Exploring citizens’ main concerns and attitudes with regard to the use of Artificial Intelligence by Law Enforcement.

Student Photo Competition

Photo competitions have demonstrated to be valuable in raising consciousness about the controversies of AI in policing among citizens whose voices are often missing from such networking endeavours and trajectory setting, recognise the value of community participation, and help create new connections and solidarity as people engage through a format other than words.

Stemming from this consideration, popAI will hold a Student Photo and Caption Competition, in order to bring in the voices of new citizens and increase their awareness and activity in this domain.

Social (Media) Listening

Social (media) listening is a term most frequently used in marketing to denote a process through which one can identify what is being said about a certain brand, product, service or topic. Marketing agencies and companies used it to acquire competitor intelligence, see how the public perceives their new product and follow the latest industry trends.

Foresight Scenarios

Foresight scenario is a key methodology for the policy-making and therefore, of great relevance and importance to popAI’s overall objective, namely, to foster trust in the application of AI in the civil security domain. The foresight scenario methodology serves as a platform for diverse stakeholders to come together and discuss, in a structured way, different and even opposing points of view, thereby assessing needs, preferences, and potential risks.

Ethics Toolbox

The Practical Ethics Toolbox responds to the crucial necessity of AI introduced in Law Enforcement with the potential to generate benefits in efficiency and accuracy, bringing positive change to European Law Enforcement Agencies’ (LEAs) operational capacity. However, at the same time, AI generates also great risks for fundamental rights and democracy. To mitigate risks and create a just, sustainable and inclusive European AI culture for Law Enforcement, it is important to understand what AI ethics is and how it applies these institutions.


As Artificial Intelligence is evolving at an incredible speed, offering new opportunities but also creating new challenges, it is of utmost importance to “keep an eye” on the future and the possible implications that the development and use of AI-based technologies could have on the society.
