Sustainable Autonomy and Resilience for LEAs using AI against High priority Threats

Project: EU project

Project Details


Today’s security challenges require sustainable use of artificial intelligence (AI) in law enforcement agencies (LEAs). The EU-funded STARLIGHT project will increase awareness, ability, adoption, and long-term results of AI applications in European LEAs. It will improve the widespread understanding of AI across LEAs to reinforce their investigative and cybersecurity operations and support legal, ethical, and societal values. By offering opportunities to exploit AI tools and solutions, STARLIGHT will ensure LEAs can protect their own AI systems, and increase LEA expertise and capacity against AI-supported crime and terrorism. The project will raise high-quality datasets, an interoperable and standardised framework, and an AI hub to enhance the EU’s strategic autonomy in AI.
