Research area:

Crime investigators work on the field – identifying, documenting, collecting, and interpreting evidence to solve complex cases. Today, more than ever before, they need to make sense of massive streams of heterogeneous data. The EU-funded PREVISION project will provide law enforcement agencies with advanced, almost-real-time, analytical support for multiple Big Data streams (coming from various data sources). The project will allow for building dynamic and self-learning knowledge graphs that will help investigators become more aware in these fields and better address hybrid security threats, i.e. threats that combine physical and cyber attacks. The project will organise five representative and complementary use cases, including the protection of public spaces and the fight of illicit trafficking of antiquities, in full compliance with privacy requirements, human rights and applicable law.




This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 833115
