Crime Investigation and Prevention Lab (CIPL) @ ITU

The proposed Crime Investigation and Prevention Lab (CIPL) at ITU will provide a platform for research, development, and implementation of data-driven solutions for

  • Crime pattern discovery and optimal surveillance.
  • Evidence gathering and suspect identification.
  • Speech Forensics.
  • Vulnerability analysis and crime prediction.

To this end, the lab plans to assemble experts in Data Science, Speech & Audio Processing, Criminology, Sociology, and Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs) to build a modern law and order hub in the region. For instance, automatic processing of recorded speech and audio data (recorded phone calls, conversations, etc.) could augment threat preemption, crime prevention and investigation processes using techniques like keyword spotting, speech recognition, and speaker identification.
