On 9 March 2022 Gavin Sullivan was invited to present at a high-level Expert Group Meeting on Building Good Practices for the use of AI for Social Network Analysis (AI-SNA) hosted by the UN Office of Counter-Terrorism’s Programme on Cybersecurity and New Technologies and the UNICRI Centre for Artificial Intelligence and Robotics. Other selected participants included experts from NATO, industry AI practitioners working closely with security and defence agencies in the US and elsewhere, and experts form the EU’s Fundamental Rights Agency. The purpose of the meeting was to help develop a concept note to shape future UNOCT/UNICRI work in this area and eventually create best practice standards on the use of AI-SNA for counter terrorism in compliance with fundamental rights.
