IRI engaged in two new projects funded by KTH’s strategic research area ICT – The next generation

IRI’s co-workers are engaged in two projects recently funded by the Royal Institute of Technology’s (KTH)strategic research area ICT-The next generation, which also includes Stockholm University.

DataLEASH: Leaming And SHaring under Privacy Constraints. The research objective is to develop and analyze data analysis tools with disclosure control based on provable guarantees, for learning and sharing in an adversarial setting, both in terms of theoretical results and application to concrete scenarios. Concretely, this means privacy risk assessment (metrics, methodology, legal constraints) and privacy-preserving learning (mechanisms, privacy-utility trade-off).

EXTREME: Explainable and Ethical Machine Leaming for Knowledge Discovery from Medical Data Sources. This project involves the use of historical medical data and accompanying predictive models in order to predict illnesses in humans in advance and thereby allow for preventive medical actions, SU addressing the legal and ethical considerations.

SU’s Project leader and contact person at the Law department for DataLEASH is Cecilia Magnusson Sjöberg. SU’s Project leader and contact person at the Law department for EXTREME is Stanley Greenstein.

The projects will in a first phase run for one year and the Law department has for this purpose received SEK 1.410.000. Both projects may thereafter be prolonged in a second phase, which in addition to the first year will last four years. Prolongations are depending on reviews that will take place end of 2019.

Autonomy in Digital Society: Digital Human Sciences Conference, Nov 7, 2019

Endagarskonferensen Autonomy in Digital Society (Autonomi i det digitala samhället) kommer att hållas på Stockholm universitet den 7 november 2019. Huvudtalare är medieteoretikern Richard Grusin, professor i engelska vid universitetet i Wisconsin-Milwaukee, och filosofen Peter-Paul Verbeek, professor i teknikfilosofi vid universitetet i Twente.

Konferensen behandlar frågor om autonomi i det digitala samhället. När fler och fler aspekter av det vardagliga livet beror av och sköts via digitala tjänster, kanaler och hjälpmedel, vilka blir konsekvenserna för individens sociala, kulturella, politiska och juridiska integritet? Kan vi kontrollera den digitala informationsinfrastrukturen som genomsyrar vår vardag? Eller är det snarare än en fråga om kontroll en fråga om att vi står inför en ny typ av emancipatorisk, demokratisk och global digital nätverkskultur?

Seminar: Privacy and Legalization of a Mass Surveillance: In Search for Resources of International Human Rights Law, Jun 5, 2019

Stockholm Center for International Law and Justice invites you to a seminar with
Dr. Vera Rusinova on the topic of
Privacy and Legalization of a Mass Surveillance: In Search for Resources of International Human Rights Law

When: Wednesday, June 5, 2019 at 10:00-12.00 in Meeting Room at
Where: Stockholm centre for commercial law (sccl), Library building, level 6, University Campus Place
Registration (voluntary): scilj@juridicum.su.se, by the 4th of June 2019

The extensive legal literature on surveillance either bemoans the death of privacy in our irrevocably digitalized world, or concentrates on issues of jurisdiction to the detriment of its material scope. This happens against a background of the growing sociologically framed surveillance studies, which tend to declare human rights to be an improper and useless organizing concept in the struggle for privacy. The recent judgements of the ECHR Chambers on the Big Brother Watch and Others v. UK and Centrum för Rättvisa v. Sweden cases, where this court has acknowledged that mass surveillance per se does not violate the Convention on the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, seem to support these pessimistic views. In her talk Vera Rusinova is going to discuss whether there are any internal and external resources of the International human rights regime, which still would be able to alter the situation.

Vera Rusinova is currently Professor of International Law at the National Research University Higher School of Economics in Moscow. She received a Doctor of legal sciences (Dr. hab.) degree in Moscow and holds a Master degree from the University of Göttingen. She is a Co-Chair of the International Law Association’s Committee on Use of Force: Military Assistance on Request, a Member of the European Society of International Law, and a Member of the Advisory Council of the Institute for International Peace and Security Law (University of Cologne, Germany). She is also member of the Editorial Groups of ‘International Justice’ and the ‘Journal of International Humanitarian Legal Studies’. She is currently conducting a study entitled ‘Application of  International Law to Cyber Operations: from lex lata to lex ferenda’.

Seminar: The International Legal Principle of Non-Interference and Cyber-Operations: Unjustified Expectations? Jun 4, 2019

Stockholm Center for International Law and Justice invites you to a seminar with
Dr. Vera Rusinova on the topic of
The International Legal Principle of Non-Interference and Cyber-Operations: Unjustified Expectations?

When: Tuesday, June 4, 2019 at 15:00-17.00

Registration (voluntary): scilj@juridicum.su.se, by the 3rd of June 2019

The overwhelming majority of the publically known computer network attacks, which are presumed to be attributable to foreign states, do not fall under the legal notion of ‘use of force’. In her talk Vera Rusinova is going to tackle the question of whether and to what extent the principle of non-interference in matters within the domestic jurisdiction, being one of the basic principles of International Law, is applicable and able to effectively deter these ‘low-intensity cyber-operations’. By revisiting the General Assembly resolutions, judgments of the International Court of Justice and analysing recent examples of computer network attacks, she is trying to clarify a regulatory impact of this principle in the realm of cyber-operations.

Seminar with Russel Weaver in Law & Informatics and Public Law, Jun 19, 2019

From Gutenberg to the Internet: Free Speech, Advancing Technology and the Implications for Democracy

When: June 19 at 17-19
Where: The Faculty Room, 8th floor House C, Stockholm University

Professor Russell Weaver, Professor of Law & Distinguished University Scholar University of Louisville, Louis D. Brandeis School of Law is a renowned expert on Privacy and Freedom of Speech, will present his book From Gutenberg to the Internet: Free Speech, Advancing Technology and the Implications for Democracy.

The history of free expression is inextricably intertwined with advances in speech technology. However, until recently, most forms of communication were limited and controlled by so-called “gatekeepers” who had the power to limit or control the ability of ordinary individuals to communicate with each other. With the advent of the Internet and new forms of technology (e.g., personal computers, iPhones, etc.), people have much greater capacity to communicate with each other. Although both governments and private entities have attempted to control discourse over the Internet, new technologies have enabled ordinary individuals to more easily communicate with each other and to participate in the political process. As a result, the Internet is reshaping political debate and political action all over the world. However, this increased ability to communicate comes with potential downsides: “fake news” and the ability for outsiders to attempt to unduly influence foreign elections.

The seminar will be held in English. Refreshments will be served after the seminar.

Welcome with you registration to Jane.Reichel@juridicum.su.se no later than June 16

Ny IVA-rapport: Detta krävs för att öka konkurrenskraften när Sverige digitaliseras

Allt fler av Sveriges centrala samhällsfunktioner använder internet. Därmed ställs helt nya krav på den digitala infrastrukturens kapacitet och säkerhet för att klara konkurrenskraften. Vi måste också bygga starka industriella plattformar och öka kompetensen. För att lyckas krävs ökad samordning och samverkan. Det menar Kungl. Ingenjörsvetenskapsakademien i en ny rapport som presenteras den 4 mars.
