About this talk

Join us as we continue our webinar series specifically designed for the community by the community with the goal to share knowledge, spark innovation, and further build and link the relationships within our HPCC Systems community. Featured topics include project work presented by two interns from our HPCC Systems academic community: Elimar Macena - Federal Institute of Espírito Santo (IFES) - Campus Serra, Brazil - Studying Crime Patterns in São Paulo state between 2006 and 2016. Intelligence led policing (ILP) refers to technology-driven crime data analysis activities to support the design of effective crime prevention and prosecution strategies. This is a new approach to fighting crime that has been gaining strength due to the convergence of two technological streams: the digitization and release of public information related to the occurrence of crimes and the development of technological platforms that allow the proper handling of such information, such as the HPCC Systems platform. Elimar's project used the HPCC platform to analyze crime patterns in the state of São Paulo in Brazil between the years of 2006 and 2016. Muiredach O'Riain - Goldsmiths, University of London - Machine Learning and the Forensic Applications of Audio Classification: An exploration of the forensic applications of sound classification using Artificial Neural Nets Muiredach will present how he used HPCC Systems to help build a reliable classification model that is able to accurately classify an input sound file to its location. His project intends to not only demonstrate a proof of concept for this technology, but also to lay the groundwork for what could be the next step in forensic audio analysis and a new means of gathering information through sound.
