Analytics Are Changing the Fight Against Child Exploitation continued from page 15

and CSE image categorization can automati- cally identify images and videos using machine learning neural network-based algorithms. Once categorized, images can be filtered based on cat- egories such as face, nudity, and suspected child exploitation, so relevant images and videos can be identified quickly. Quickly Identify and Cross-Match Victims with Facial Detection Powerful algorithms can now automatically detect faces within any picture or video available to the system, enabling investigators to immedi- ately and accurately cross-match individual faces. This allows investigators to quickly identify ad- ditional images or videos of the same victim. Analyze Conversations for Potential Luring or Abuse Natural language processing goes beyond regex and simple watch lists to uncover names, addresses, locations and more from artifacts like emails, websites, text messages or even images that contain text, using OCR, in multiple languages. Leverage Public Domain Cloud Data to Correlate Evidence Visualize and analyze publicly available data from supported social media and cloud-based sources in a unified format to track behavior, un- cover common connections and correlate critical evidence that can help build a stronger case. Seamless Integration with Project VIC, CAID and Other Hash Databases Existence of known incriminating images can be automatically identified by matching im- age hash values, and can then be classified using pre-defined CSE severity categories. Previously unknown images that are discovered can also be categorized, tagged and exported back to Project VIC and CAID databases in a seamless and inte- grated process. A Collective, Collaborative Fight to Serve and Protect Preventing child exploitation takes collabo- ration, real-time information and an ongoing commitment to identify every victim quickly and get criminals – and the content they produce and share – off the streets. With more and more children using mobile devices at an earlier age, the risks are only getting bigger.

Digital Intelligence Helps Law Enforcement Protect the Innocent Digital data – especially images and video - plays an increasingly important role in investigations and operations of all kinds. Enabling access, sharing and analysis of this digital data from mobile devices, social media, cloud, computer and other sources helps investigators build the strongest cases quickly, even in the most complex situations. The goal for law enforcement is to find rel- evant, actionable digital evidence quickly. Part- nering with companies such as Cellebrite for solutions that automate analysis of huge volumes of digital data will help achieve a shared goal: to find and protect exploited children, and make a safer world more possible every day.
