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.
This lecture was 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.
