VideoSense will integrate leading European research groups to create a long term open integration of critical mass in the twin areas of Ethically-Guided and Privacy Preserving Video Analytics where the advent of new data intelligence technologies against the background of dynamic societal and citizen’s goals, norms, expectations, safety and security needs and thus surveillance requirements have all contributed to a complex interplay of influences which deserve in-depth study and solution seeking in order for the European society, citizen and industry to strike the optimal balance in resolution of the various challenges in this arena. Accordingly VideoSense provides for: i) Fostering increased sustainable relationships between existing national research groups ii) Momentum building by integrating existing researchers and resources to push forward new paradigms and the knowledge basis for the resolution of ethically guided, sense-ful, selective, useful, cost–effective solutions to society’s surveillance needs iii) Establishing a Virtual Centre of Excellence and expandable framework, based on Pan European integration of complementary expertise and optimisation of shared, flexible modular and inter-connected resources including knowhow, laboratories and people to support collaborative research and agenda setting, iv) Two external Boards of Industrial and Scientific Advisors to keep the targeted research focused and responsive to the needs of the European citizen, society and industry vi) Establishing a standard framework for Ethical Compliance Audit Management based on a suitably evolved Compliance Audit Maturity Model (CAMM) and associated Training and Certification services as both a service to organisations and revenue streams to ensure longer term sustainability of the Centre.
