Lessons Learnt

We have analyzed the literature and extracted the following ideas on how technologies are favouring this SDG.
See also what we propose and tell us what you think


AI in its various methodologies is postulated as a highly effective tool in the fight against violence and crime, providing technological support for crime surveillance, prevention and prediction


AI represents an opportunity to improve universal access to justice, providing telematic judicial consultation methods, judicial support / aid systems, and facilitating judicial procedures in poorly cohesive territories through communication infrastructures.


The application of AI to fight crime can induce bias towards certain individuals or groups, generating discrimination and breaching the Principle of Presumption of Innocence, among others.


AI in conjunction with the data reported on the network can be a tool for the intentional free-will manipulation for various purposes, which makes it difficult for individuals to act independently and for societies to achieve the ideal of freedom, justice, and peace.


The proposed actions on which we introduce an opinion poll for this SDG, are described below:

Poll for SDG-16
