The technical meeting, took place in Ilmenau, on June 12-13, 2019 hosted by partner "Fraunhofer". This meeting was mainly a hackathon to meet MS2 targets.
The goal to have a 'system' ready for July to be demonstrated to our end users has been met.
Opposite this goal, the following were addressed:
A. Input (i.e. proto1 input: - 10 fake web pages interleaved with Policing data set). Discussed and agreed (Lutech, Singular Logic, Fraunhofer, AE Solutions)
B. Processing (i.e. refined search & analysis jobs, image/sound filtering on agreed data schemas) Demonstrated.
C. Output (i.e. a data graph with the universal use case defined functionality) Demonstrated.
All Hackathon topics (list below) addressed the Hacking tasks:
i) Overall system runtime and setup
ii) Set-up scheduler mockup or testing environment (sending batch tasks to services)
1. Architecture & Systems (SYSTEM)
2. Service Integration (SERVICES)
3. Knowledge base development and Provision (KNOWLEDGE)
4. Demo preparation (DEMO)
5. Users management & Logging (AUTHENTICATE)
6. GUI development (Graph UI)
Seven (7) module development jobs have been configured with the following responsibilities:
The Universal Use Case scenario has been validated and it will determine the following scenario steps.
LEAs WORKSHOP: Refining SPIRIT incidental findings and risks policies
The SPIRIT project held the LEAs WORKSHOP: Refining SPIRIT Incidental findings and risks policies, on the 10th of June, at Wolfson College in Oxford. The workshop was organised by the ethical lead partner, the IDTUAB, and lead by one of the external advisors on the SPIRIT Incidental Findings, Prof. Nicholas Morris (PhD).
The aim of the workshop was to complete the incidental risk assessment- as included in D.9.2- for developing a comprehensive policy to address the incidental risks of SPIRIT.
The workshop gave SPIRIT researchers and external advisors the chance to better understand the potential issues of breaches of privacy, inappropriate or wrongful release of personal data and identity data, in police work, among other significant and challenging issues that need to be carefully addressed from a legal and ethical perspective. This was possible due to the great support and collaboration of the SPIRIT LEAs. Trough participatory methods that included several practical exercises, LEAs reflected and shared their expertise on incidental risks, risk minimizing strategies and structures in place in their organisations and room for improvement on how legal and ethical values, principles and requirements should be addressed by LEAs in their day-to-day processing of personal data.
