First element of the INDECT INACT system prototype delivered to the End Users
The first version of the INDECT Advanced Image Catalogue Tool (INACT) Indexer was delivered to the Polish Police on 7th July during a meeting in Warsaw. The role of the module is to allow for cataloguing of the evidence material in form of images containing children pornography (CP) and other, prohibited by law content. The system is at the an early prototype (beta) stage and was delivered for the purpose of testing and in order to gather feedback from potential end users.
The module allows the Police officers to create a database of evidence without storing the prohibited content itself. The images in the database are identified by a set of unique high- and low- level descriptors. The technology, which allows for fast and semi-automatic extraction and storage of the metadata was developed at the AGH University of Technology, department of Telecommunications.
The progress and development of catalogue and search tools for the purpose of combating the CP will allow for more time-efficient investigation. This will result in faster achievement of the basic goal of the fight against CP - protection of the victims.
