AI4Intelligence Project Granted
NWO has granted the KIC Data and Intelligence project “AI4Intelligence: from Multimodal Data to Trustworthy Evidence in Court”. This project, led by Marcel Worring of the Informatics Institute, will fund 5 PhD students and applied researchers and is a collaboration with Utrecht University, TU/e, VUA, University of Applied Sciences Leiden, and The Hague University of Applied Sciences.
It is co-funded by the National Police, Netherlands Forensics Institute, TNO and seven companies. The project is conceived on the premise that law enforcement is faced with huge amounts of data from online platforms, digital marketplaces, or communication services. Finding evidence in such large collections of text, images, and other data and bringing it to court is a time-consuming process. Artificial Intelligence tools are a promising way to make this more efficient and effective. But currently no clear legal regulations for AI tools are in place. In AI4Intelligence we let AI tool development, the use of the tools by investigators, and legal regulations go hand-in-hand so investigations lead to trustworthy evidence that is admissible in court.

The Institute for Advanced Study (IAS) and Data Science Center (DSC) of the University of Amsterdam (UvA) are joining forces in a new joint fellowship for (teams of) researchers interested in exploring the intersection of data science and other disciplines. The first fellow of the new program, Dr. Davide Ceolin, will start his fellowship at the IAS on June 17. Ceolin is currently affiliated with CWI.
Nanda Piersma, lecturer at the University of Applied Sciences (AUAS), has been appointed as a crown member of the Social and Economic Counsil (SER). This is the first time that a lecturer has been appointed as member of the SER. Nanda Piersma was approached because of her expertise in the field of digitisation.
