Advanced technologies are increasingly used to commit sophisticated criminal activities. Identifying, preventing and fighting modern crimes demands the implementation of ground-breaking technologies and methods. While cybercrime and terrorism pose distinct problems and may rely on different input datasets, the analysis of this data can benefit from the application of the same fundamental technology base framework, endowed with Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning techniques applied to big data analytics, and extended and tailored with crime- and task- specific additional analytic capabilities and tools.
The AIDA project has received funding from the EU’s Horizon 2020 Programme to develop a descriptive and predictive data analytics platform and related tools to prevent, detect, analyse, and combat criminal activities.
The resulting integrated, modular and flexible AIDA framework will include LE-specific effective, efficient and automated data mining and analytics services to deal with intelligence and investigation workflows, extensive content acquisition, information extraction and fusion, knowledge management and enrichment through novel applications of Big Data processing, machine learning, artificial intelligence, predictive and visual analytics. The final solution will reach Technology Readiness Level 7: system prototype demonstration in operational environment.
AIDA system and tools will be made available to LEAs through a secure sandbox environment that aims to raise the technological readiness level of the solutions through their application in operational environment with real data.
