Democracy+Technology Cafe - AIs impact on the police and criminal justice system
In our first Technology+Democracy Café of 2019 we will focus on the impact of Artificial Intelligence on the police and our criminal justice systems. A topic that has profound impact on each and every one of us and that is highly relevant locally with the latest investment of the Danish government in the Polintel system from Palantir. In this session we look forward to presenting our own research on the topic, based on interviews with the leading thinkers on the topic globally. This includes insights from: - Christopher Griffen, Research Director at Harvard's Access to Justice lab - Andrew Guthrie Ferguson, the author of “Big data policing” and Professor at UDC David A. Clarke School of Law - Sarah Brayne, Assistant Professor at University of Texas and specialist in predictive policing in practice after spending two years studying Palantir systems in LAPD We are happy to once again have such a treat for you and are really looking forward to another great discussion. Please go ahead and secure your ticket here now: We hope to see you there! All the best, The Next Generation Democracy Core group

    What we're about

    Our global society is undergoing tremendous change. People are connected like never before, life expectancy is increasing, and technological inventions which up until yesterday were seen as science fiction, are now available to the general public every day.

    It is however not all positive. In the western world the democratic way in which we run society is under pressure as nationalism and populism is on the rise, while the trust that the populations have in politicians and political systems is decreasing. The challenges are amplified as a lot of people feel that they are not receiving their share of increased wealth that is created, and that the technological developments that should be empowering them are instead leaving them behind. We wish to turn this development around.

    At NextGen Democracy, we use technology to make democracy work for all of us. This is a group for everyone who are interested in the topic and who would like to gain a deeper understanding of the current developments and take action to improve the situation.
