Artificial Intelligence and advanced Data Analytics for Law Enforcement Agencies

Project description

Breakthrough techniques against cybercrime and terrorism

Advanced technologies are increasingly used in criminal activities. Identifying, preventing and fighting modern crime demands the implementation of pioneering technologies and methods. The EU-funded AIDA project is focussing on cybercrime and terrorism by approaching specific issues related to law enforcement agencies (LEAs) using pioneering machine learning and artificial intelligence methods. The project will deliver a descriptive and predictive data analytics platform and related tools which will prevent, identify, analyse and combat cybercrime and terrorist activities. The platform is based on the fundamental technology applied to Big Data analytics provided with AI and deep learning techniques expanded and tailored with additional crime-specific capabilities and tools. The system will be delivered to LEAs through a safe sandbox environment, improving the technological readiness level in operational conditions with real data.


The proposed solution aims to deliver a descriptive and predictive data analytics platform and related tools using state-of-the-art machine learning and artificial intelligence methods to prevent, detect, analyse, and combat criminal activities. AIDA will focus on cybercrime and terrorism, by addressing specific challenges related to law enforcement investigation and intelligence. 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 resulting TRL-7 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. 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.
