New forensics tools will speed the identification and rescue of children pictured in child sexual exploitation material
NYU Tandon and Griffeye Researchers Use Artificial Intelligence Technology to Quickly Analyze Photos and Videos
Researchers at the New York University Tandon School of Engineering and Griffeye have begun building a sophisticated suite of tools to be used for child sexual exploitation investigations and Victim ID.
Professor of Computer Science and Engineering Nasir Memon leads the software development along with Griffeye Director Johann Hofmann. Their team is consulting with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Child Exploitation Investigations Unit.
About the NYU Tandon School of Engineering
The NYU Tandon School of Engineering dates to 1854, when the New York University School of Civil Engineering and Architecture as well as the Brooklyn Collegiate and Polytechnic Institute (widely known as Brooklyn Poly) were founded. Their successor institutions merged in January 2014 to create a comprehensive school of education and research in engineering and applied sciences, rooted in a tradition of invention, and entrepreneurship and dedicated to furthering technology in service to society. In addition to its main location in Brooklyn, NYU Tandon collaborates with other schools within the country’s largest private research university and is closely connected to engineering programs in NYU Abu Dhabi and NYU Shanghai. It operates business incubators in downtown Manhattan and Brooklyn and an award-winning online graduate program. For more information, visit engineering.nyu.edu.
