Public Seminar: Big Data and the Police
The IT University headed research project CUPP and PROSA are hosting a public seminar and debate on data driven policing. Panelists include Palantir Technologies representative Paula Kift, former DPO of the National Police of Denmark, Christian Wiese Svanberg, and Jesper Lund from the IT Political Association.
Since 2017, Danish police has worked with a digital, data driven system called Pol-Intel. Critics have raised concerns over potential violations of civil liberties in predictive policing – a practice Danish authorities have denied engaging in.
What are the problems inherent to data intelligence driven policing? Does law enforcement run the risk of violating civil liberties by employing digital practices?
These are questions that will be debated during a public seminar and debate hosted by the ITU led research project CUPP (Critical Understanding of Predictive Policing) and PROSA, the Danish union of IT-professionals, on December 14. The debate panel will feature Privacy and Civil Liberties Engineer, Paula Kift, from Palantir Technologies, the US-based company that has developed Pol-Intel, former DPO of the National Police of Denmark, Christian Wiese Svanberg, and Jesper Lund of the IT Political Association.
The event is free and open to the public. Register your participation at the CUPP website.
