Since 2018, Data Science Initiative (DSI) has been The Hague's facilitating ground for Artificial Intelligence & Datascience for Peace, Justice, and Security. A lot of work has been done by the DSI team and partners. Looking back at what DSI set out, they have made a video report. Deputy Mayor Saskia Bruines, Danny Honigh, Kate Dodgson, Bas van der Starre and Joris den Bruinen have been interviewed for this recap.

The video also shows that DSI is included in the NL AI Coalition, in the working group Security, Peace and Justice. The Dutch Cabinet has invested 23,5 million in the NL AI Coalition to kickstart the coalition and do research into and the development of AI applications. 


The aim of the working group Security, Peace and Justice is to connect relevant national players in this ecosystem and to cooperate on clear results and thus accelerate developments. Subjects that the workinggroup focuses on include: Automated Security Operations Lab, AI for Internet of Things, Operational Technology Security and NL AI for the Dutch language. The workgroup is led by Joris den Bruinen, director HSD. He therefore also leads the national working group Data&Intel of the mission driven topsector policy approach. Marlou Snelders (HSD Office) is secretary of both working groups.
