Lords Committee questions experts on tools currently in use as part of its inquiry into new technologies and the application of the law
The Justice and Home Affairs Committee seeks to explore the use of advanced algorithmic tools in activities to discover, deter, rehabilitate, or punish people who breach the law.
Witnesses will discuss advanced algorithmic tools currently in use in England and Wales, such as the Digital Categorisation Service or facial recognition, and will locate them in their wider legal and constitutional context.
- How proportionate is the use of these tools to the needs they are trying to address? How else could these needs be met?
- When trying to strike a balance between using information to protect and avoiding infringements on liberty, what potential infringements should we consider?
- How would you characterise the legal framework around advanced technologies in the justice system? What would you like to see?
