ITI/CERTH establishes cooperation with Hellenic Police/Forensic Sciences Subdivision of Northern Greece

The growth of electronic crime has called for the development of advanced analysis tools that could facilitate the tasks of digital forensic examiners. In this context, ITI/CERTH has established cooperation with Hellenic Police/Forensic Sciences Subdivision of Northern Greece, in order to integrate innovative multimedia technologies into dedicated forensic tools that could support the investigations of electronic crime.

During this cooperation, ITI/CERTH with the guidance of Hellenic Police has developed an interactive multimedia content-based search engine that is capable of retrieving multimedia content and automatically recognizing pornographic material. This search engine is evaluated and tested by the Hellenic Police, in order to be used for facilitating the investigations on child pornography detection.
