SURVANT: An EU-Funded Project Success Story

EU Commission has published success story about the Survant project.

An innovative artificial intelligence platform being developed by EU-funded researchers analyses CCTV and videos posted on social media to identify criminals, suspicious behaviour and events more quickly.

Researchers in the EU-funded SURVANT project are working on an innovative system that will be able to automatically gather and analyse videos and images. Their aim is to provide a user-friendly platform with advanced visualisation tools to help users search and examine footage, ultimately improving investigators’ capacity and efficiency.
