PERICULUM is a transdisciplinary and inter-scientific collaborative research hub under the aegis of the Department of Security Studies at the Faculty of Social Sciences, Charles University.

The underlying project Human-Machine Nexus and the Implications for the International Order has won the status of Charles University's Centre of Excellence. The main function of the hub is to cultivate and reinforce internationally relevant and successful post-doctoral research in the areas of artificial intelligence, security order and radicalisation. The collective of junior and senior researchers studies these topics individually as well as searches for mutual intersections. As a way of reflecting the notion of Human-Machine Nexus the project’s research on artificial intelligence involves also a methodological pivot towards applying machine learning to study security phenomena.
