    techUK and the CDEI are holding a roundtable on machine learning and predictive policing

On Monday 22 July, techUK in partnership with the Centre for Data Ethics and Innovation, will explore the successes, challenges and lessons concerning the development and procurement of machine learning and predictive analytics for policing. Discussions will focus on the current tool development process, partnership models and ethical and legal considerations.

The Centre is currently undertaking a review into bias in algorithmic decision-making in the Crime and Justice sector. As part of this review, the Centre is developing a code of practice for the design, development and trialling of predictive policing technology, which will help mitigate algorithmic bias and address wider ethical concerns. The Centre has commissioned Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) to undertake an independent research study into how algorithmic tools are currently being used by police forces in England and Wales, along with the potential for biased outcomes for certain individuals or groups. This roundtable will feed into the Centre and RUSI’s research and final report.

This closed roundtable event will bring together technology companies developing and providing machine learning tools to the police and wider law enforcement sector. The content of the discussion will be strictly anonymous and non-attributable. A full agenda will be circulated closer to the event.
