The infra-Legalities project asks the following research questions:
- How are AI systems and automated decision-making processes changing global security law and governance?
- What are the legal, political, epistemic and ethical implications of these data-driven processes?
- How are AI systems and automated decision-making processes enabling potential threats of (i) terrorism and extremism online and (ii) the cross-border movements of ‘risky’ individuals, to be detected and governed?
- What challenges do these systems pose for the protection of human rights and how can these best be addressed?
- How are relations between pre-emptive security and informational capitalism and public and private governance interconnected and reconfigured through global security infrastructures?
- What regulatory approaches can be applied to emergent AI-driven security practices to ensure fairness, security and accountability and how should these approaches be assessed?
