The challenge for internal security practitioners including law enforcement and the justice sector is to determine how to capitalise on the opportunities offered by Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning to improve the way investigators, prosecutors, judges or border guards carry out their mission of keeping citizens safe and rendering justice while, at the same time, safeguarding and demonstrating true accountability of AI use towards society.
The AP4AI (Accountability Principles for Artificial Intelligence) Project addresses this challenge by creating a global Framework for AI Accountability for Policing, Security and Justice.
The AP4AI Framework is grounded in empirically verified Accountability Principles for AI as carefully researched and accessible standard, which supports internal security practitioners in implementing AI and Machine Learning tools in an accountable and transparent manner and in line with EU values and fundamental rights.
The AP4AI Project is jointly conducted by CENTRIC and Europol and supported by the EU Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA), Eurojust, the EU Agency for Asylum (EUAA) and the EU Agency for Law Enforcement Training (CEPOL) in the framework of the EU Innovation Hub for Internal Security.
The AP4AI Framework and related AP4AI Toolkits will be freely available to all security and justice practitioners.
