Online, 17 December 2020

Event number:

Area of law:


This online conference will take a detailed look at the interlink between “Big Data”, Artificial Intelligence, their use and abuse and the possibilities of criminal investigations regarding new technologies as well as the need for data protection, which stands at the very heart of the debate.

The aim of the event is to discuss these questions with stakeholders from various backgrounds including law enforcement, representatives of relevant private parties, academia, NGOs, regulators, legislators, etc. How can law enforcement enhance both freedom and security in a world which is more data-driven and complex every day.

  • AI and Big Data - challenges in the area of law enforcement
  • Facial recognition – our new best friend in criminal investigations?
  • Deep fakes, blockchain, 5G and future trends
  • Masters of the crystal ball – Project 2020 in review
