To greatly aid criminal justice system efficiency and accountability in the developing world, we are planning a feasibility study and pilot project to develop a scalable Information hub and database for the cross-referencing and analysis of case data collected from laypersons, lawyers, trial monitors, NGOs, police, prosecutors, prisons and courts. The aim is to advance law enforcement and legal protection that is unbiased, non-abusive and professional, and to do so in a way that is practicable for uptake in the developing world.
Certain standards and formats will need to be decided on, as will the means of securing data that is tamper-proof and trustworthy. Specialised interfaces, authentication tokens, asymmetric encryption, the protect ion of API calls, preservation of anonymity for some, measures to prevent Sybil attacks, ways to incentivise participation, etc. will all need to be carefully considered. Furthermore, it is essential the centralised system operates with neutrality and integrity, and that there is impartial oversight. The later incorporation into the system of AI predictive analysis to help ensure impartial judgements will also need to be carefully looked at.
This is a groundbreaking project. If you feel you have the necessary skills and expertise to contribute, please get in touch.
