The Security Research NCP Network (SEREN4) and the French Ministry of Interior, with the support of the European Commission are pleased to invite you to the Milipol practitioner workshops dedicated to the 2020 topics in Horizon2020 that are related to the impact of Artificial Intelligence in law enforcement.

The workshops will take place on Wednesday 20 November during Milipol Paris 2019, at the Paris-Nord Villepinte Exhibition Centre – Halls 4 & 5a. The event is dedicated to practitioners who are interested in the uptake of security research and innovation. Take the opportunity to share your needs and innovative ideas with the aim of paving the way for future cooperation, and register now!

Please note that registrations to both Milipol Paris and Workshops H2020 are free of charge but mandatory.


The morning session will be dedicated to AI and global security, while the afternoon session will focus on AI and cyber security. a cocktail networking will be organized for lunch. Each panel will be mainly composed of European practitioners and followed by Q/A with the attendees.

09:40  -  10:55

Panel 1: AI solutions to help LEAs
 Although AI in law enforcement has been used for a long time, the recent advances of AI systems are expected to have further significant positive impact on the ability to investigate crimes and terrorism activities. For example AI will allow sounder data analysis, better person and object recognition and identification, enhanced scene analysis and anomaly detection, superior robotics and IoT for sensing and protection, etc.
Will AI will the face of policing in the coming years? Will AI enhance the efficacy and efficiency in border control for example? Which security areas would be the most impacted by AI?

11:15  -  12:30

Panel 2: Cooperation for high-quality datasets in Europe
 AI can bring benefits to fight against crime, including cybercrime and terrorism in analysing and interpreting huge amount of data (images, videos, audio records, geospatial intelligence, communication data, travel movements, surveillance/ datafication). However, the scarcity of high-quality datasets is a major issue. To this end, a close cooperation of law enforcement and judiciary systems of different Member States is necessary.
How to secure at a European level the availability of large enough and up-to-date high-quality datasets?

14:00  -  15:15

Panel 3: AI for cybersecurity & protection against attacks on the AI systems
 AI applications are being used in cyber security solutions such as spam filter applications, network intrusion detection and prevention, fraud detection, credit scoring, botnet detection, secure user authentication, cyber security ratings, hacking incident forecasting… At the same time, it is necessary to protect LEAs against attacks on AI tools that are used for example to detect criminal or terrorism activities.
How AI tools can enhance cybersecurity? Should we trust such tools? What about their certification at European/International level?

15:45  -  17:00

Panel 4: AI and citizen acceptance
 Acceptance of AI technologies by users and citizens can be complex. Secure-by-design algorithms are necessary to build trust in this technology. In addition, a broader engagement of civil society on the values to be embedded in AI is crucial.
What are the ways to build a societally-driven AI, fostering the engagement of citizens and improving their perception of security?
