Irakli Beridze, director of the UN Centre for Artificial Intelligence and Robotics, discusses cutting-edge research on AI and its applications in the justice system.
Both dystopian and utopian visions concerning the role of AI in the future are everywhere around us. AI has great potential in achieving tasks that will make the world a better place, but how will these increasingly powerful technologies be used? Who makes sure they are applied for good, and not evil? Irakli Beridze, Director of the United Nations (UNICRI) Centre for AI & Robotics, has been working with governments and stakeholders around the globe (such as INTERPOL) to address how AI and advanced technologies can help improve our security through enabling law enforcement, but also how users like criminals can utilize these technologies for malicious intent.
AI can enable law enforcement agencies and legal professionals to enhance their capabilities to prevent, control, investigate and prosecute crime. For instance, machine learning, an application of AI, could more effectively and efficiently identify persons of interest or predict trends in criminality or terrorist action, while AI in the courts could support the automated generation of judgments. But its usage is not without controversy and AI can also enable new digital, physical and political threats. The challenges surrounding the malicious use of deepfakes for example is a major concern.
Irakli Beridze is head of the Centre for AI and Robotics at the United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI). He has many years of experience in the field of negotiations on disruptive technologies and issues related to international security. Besides being a recipient of recognition on the awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize to the Organization on the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons in 2013, he is also a member of many organizations including the World Economic Forum’s Global Artificial Intelligence Council, the UN High-level panel for digital cooperation and the High-Level Expert Group on Artificial Intelligence of the European Commission.
This lecture is organized by Studium Generale in cooperation with TU/e’s TGD (Technology for Global Development). TGD raises awareness about global environmental and socio-economic challenges, in order to inspire the TU/e community to create and implement innovative technological solutions.
