EU Project - Collaborative information, Acquisition, Processing, Exploitation and Reporting for the prevention of organised crime (CAPER)

Organised crime use information technology systems to communicate, work or expand their influence. Current tools for the fight against organised crime have shown their limits and reflect the need to develop a scalable tool to track them more efficiently.

CAPER ’s objective is to build a common collaborative and information sharing platform for the detection and prevention of organised crime exploiting Open Source Intelligence. State intelligence agencies are becoming more inclined to use Open Source Intelligence (OSI), and particularly tools typically associated with the Social or Semantic Web.

The analysis modules built in the CAPERproject will also give new value to existing intelligence through image, video, speech and biometric analysis.
