In partnership, the European Organisation of Prison and Correctional Services (EuroPris) and the International Corrections and Prisons Association (ICPA) will organise in April 2021, the fourth global Technology in Corrections Conference under the title Disrupting Corrections, which will be held virtual due to the current restrictions in travel.
Technology Disrupting Corrections
Disruptive technology is an innovation that significantly alters the way that consumers, public service, or businesses operate. A disruptive technology overtakes and often replaces the existing systems because it has recognizably superior attributes.
Recent examples of disruptive technologies include – Artificial Intelligence (AI), the Internet of Things, 3D Printing, Virtual Reality, Blockchain, Cloud, Robotic Process Automation, but also Social Media and online communications systems, e.g. Zoom.
During the Technology in Corrections Conference, we will embrace critical and positive reflections on the use of these technologies. We will also look at the ways that technology impacts on Corrections thereby disrupting corrections, both in the ways we work and how this impacts upon those in our care, and to show the many positive benefits for us all.
