Call for Expression of Interest - eu-LISA Industry Roundtable November 2021

Throughout November 2021, the European Union Agency for the Operational Management of Large-Scale IT Systems in the Area of Freedom, Security and Justice (eu-LISA) will host its next Industry Roundtable – Artificial Intelligence in Large-scale IT Systems: Opportunities and Challenges.

The event, organised in cooperation with the Slovenian Presidency of the Council of the EU, will take place online, over four consecutive weeks (one afternoon per week: 4/11, 11/11, 18/11, 25/11), using a dedicated platform for virtual events.

The 14th edition of the eu-LISA Industry Roundtable will focus on the opportunities and challenges for implementing Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the context of the large-scale IT systems operated by eu-LISA.

There is no doubt that AI will become an integral part of the operational management of large-scale IT systems in the Justice and Home Affairs (JHA) area. There are a number of areas where AI can and will play an important role. First and foremost, in the case of customs, AI can be effectively utilised to support risk assessment in border and migration management. eu-LISA together with Frontex are already exploring the integration of an AI-based screening system within the scope of ETIAS, which will allow for automated profiling of travellers on the basis of pre-defined risk indicators and screening rules.

AI capabilities are also essential in developing advanced analytics solutions. Here, one of the most prominent use cases is the Central Repository for Reporting and Statistics (CRRS), part of the Interoperability architecture. Within the scope of the CRRS, AI may be deployed in different layers: starting with a multilingual natural language interface, to supporting data quality assurance and advanced data analytics. AI is already deployed and will continue to be essential in IT infrastructure management, and in improving the energy efficiency of data centres operated by eu-LISA.

The next edition of the eu-LISA Industry Roundtable will provide a forum for the industry and eu-LISA key stakeholders to exchange views on the developments of AI technologies of immediate relevance for the JHA domain, with a specific focus on the large-scale IT systems. The event will target the following applications of AI technologies:

  • Advanced data analytics and forecasting;
  • AI for advanced data analytics in IT operations;
  • Privacy-preserving technologies for data analytics and AI;
  • Biometric recognition technologies.
