Industry Roundup: Image Recognition And Categorization

Monday, July 08, 2019 (08:26:52)
by Christa Miller, Forensic Focus

The need for image recognition and categorization has never been more in demand thanks to the spread of extremist propaganda, child sexual abuse material (CSAM), and other illicit activity across the internet.

Because of the sheer amount of material online, investigators assigned to these kinds of cases need ways to recognize it quickly and also to categorize it — to separate known from fresh material. This is particularly important when it comes to neutralizing active threats and rescuing victims — as well as preserving investigators’ mental health by limiting the amount of material they have to see.

Thanks to developments in machine learning and artificial intelligence, a number of vendor products have been able to incorporate rapid recognition or categorization tools into their software. Here, we take a look at what’s available.

Amped Software Partners With The University Of Colorado Denver

Friday, July 05, 2019 (15:27:37)
Education is important for raising the value of video and image forensics. The more practitioners understand the correct way to process and clarify the evidence they receive, the better the probative value that evidence becomes. One group who has been working for many years to raise the quality and skill set of analysts is the National Center for Media Forensics (NCMF) at the University of Colorado Denver. In addition to participating in research and assisting with best practices for the field, they have developed curriculum at the collegiate level to educate competent forensic scientists. Through their Media Forensics Master’s program, and training courses throughout the year, they are leaders in the education of current and future examiners.

Fighting Crime With Data: Law Enforcement In The 21st Century

Friday, July 05, 2019 (14:55:02)
by Paul Hamrick, Nuix

Law enforcement investigations have long been influenced by developments in technology; after all, new technologies create new ways for criminals to profit and new sources of evidence. Law enforcement needs to keep up with the times, dealing with technological developments in areas like firearms, automobiles or more recently, digital communications.

Over recent years, many cases have been solved after analysing electronic evidence from suspects’ devices. The wealth of information people create merely by using everyday technologies is a treasure trove for investigators to determine when a crime occurred, where it happened, who was present and any number of other connections to real people and their actions.
