Core competencies

Research and Technology Provider on the following areas:
• Security, data integrity and data protection
• Sensors & sensing
• Multimedia analytics (audio, image, video, text) and understanding
• Intelligent information processing and data fusion
• Web/opinion/social web mining and crawling
• Mobile applications and social media

Competences
1) Advanced situational awareness
a) Distributed Multimodal (audio-image-video) analytics (on sensors, at cloud edge, etc.) for
scalability and quality of service purposes (includes more advanced analytics algorithms for
riots/fights detection, crowd movement analysis, a more extended set of suspicious citizens
behaviour based on movement and concurrent detected spatio-temporal objects, etc.)
i) From surveillance cameras,
ii) Captured video/audio from citizens mobile devices, etc.
iii) From dispersed sensors in the city
b) (Mobile) Audio-Image-Video Annotation for Citizens/FRs rich media emergency reporting and
notification (citizens and FRs mobile application(s))
i) Location-based mobile social media application for interaction of citizens with cities safety
authorities on
(1) Emergencies
(2) Complain reports
(3) Volunteering
(4) Alerting messages, announcements, etc.
ii) Location-based mobile application for enhanced communication of First
Responders/Policemen/ with Command Posts/Security Authorities
(1) Emergency reporting (map + location + rich media message) with prioritized
transmission
(2) Situational awareness and notification from Command Post with rich media messages
c) Sensors dynamic discovery and remote control
2) Security, data integrity and data protection
a) Secure communications, identity management, authentication, access control
b) Heterogeneous Data handling (encyption/decryption), secure data storage
c) Content (audio-image-video) fingerprinting & usage monitoring
i) Citizens may track usage of content
ii) Authorities may validate originator
3) Intelligent Data Management and Understanding
a) (Stored) Audio/Image/Video Understanding and Semantic Annotation from prior data
b) Multimodal data fusion
i) Audio and visual cross-correlations and dependencies on hinting similar events
ii) Could accomodate hints/detections from other sensors
c) Web mining, opinion mining and sentiment analysis (e.g. Social media content mining and
filtering)
i) Understanding positive/negative sentiment
ii) Analysing “meaning” of message – NLP, text mining (in english) or using structured
templates to fasten the process.
(1) Prioritizing of reported incidents
(2) Discarding false alarms
iii) Multimedia Mining & Understanding
