by UNICRI & United Arab Emirates Ministry of Interior
How can we help law enforcement investigators quickly distinguish real child sexual abuse material over AI-generated material by providing them with an innovative tool/approach to automatically flag potentially faked or altered materials when reviewing and prioritising a vast amount of files, instead of chasing leads that are not going to help real children in need of safeguarding?

by Gemeente Den Haag
How can we help the municipality field workers and housing organizations in The Hague to allocate shelter seekers in better matching locations by enabling them to work efficiently within a shared overview when taking into consideration the different types of homeless people, the latest city data and the best way to guide them on the journey from daily to (semi-) permanent placement, instead of operating in an urgency state and not utilizing resources to their optimal capacity and purpose?
