After an intensive 2-year journey of cross-disciplinary research, awareness raising and ecosystem engagement activities on the trusted and responsible use of Artificial Intelligence in EU law enforcement, the popAI project comes to its conclusion with the organisation of the popAI Final Event: towards a European AI hub for LEAs supporting the ethical use of AI in policing.

The event will take place on Tuesday 19 September 2023 at the Marivaux Hotel, in Brussels, Belgium and it is going to be held as a solely physical attendance, full day event, presenting popAI results in terms of policy recommendations, multi-disciplinary best practices, ethics toolbox, fore-sighting and roadmap for the ethical use of AI in civil security, all included within the blueprint for a European AI hub supporting the ethical and responsible use of AI in law enforcement.

We are delighted to welcome the actively participating EU Security Research cluster on AI (SU-AI) sibling projects  ALIGNER and  STARLIGHT, as well as all linked EU projects and invited representatives from all stakeholder groups of the ecosystem, including relevant EU institutions, LEAs and civil society. The event will also include multi-disciplinary panel discussions and speeches on key topics concerning the ecosystem and in line with actual use and planned exploitation of popAI results within the cluster.

About popAI: popAI project is a 24-month Coordination and Support Action aimed at creating a sustainable and inclusive European AI hub for Law Enforcement Agencies. It brings together various stakeholders, including security practitioners, AI scientists, ethics and privacy researchers, civil society organisations, and experts in social sciences and humanities. The core vision of popAI is to build trust in AI for the security domain through increased awareness and ongoing social engagement. The project focuses on consolidating different areas of knowledge, offering a unified European perspective across LEAs, and providing specialised knowledge outputs such as recommendations and roadmaps. PopAI adopts a sustainable ecosystem perspective by creating cross-disciplinary AI-LEA ethics hubs and engaging with stakeholders to ensure gender and diversity representation. Through co-creation within the ecosystem, the project seeks to foster a Positive Sum viewpoint in security and AI innovation processes.
