Germany’s Bundesministerium für Wirtschaft und Klimaschutz Gets the word out about Project ATTENTION!
It has been just over three months since our kickoff event with our partners and it’s been a great journey so far! Barbara Lira, Product Manager of RisikoTek, says, “this project is a challenging one, but everyone is eager to make it work”.
Eye on the Prize
Using technology to detect illegal trade without the thousands of hours used today for investigation will speed up interdiction operations and speed up the destruction of illegal networks. AI basically holds a possibility to increase the insights that investigators already have. AI can go beyond the criminal techniques that we know from history and possibly start to detect new suspicious activity before it becomes historical.
No doubt to start with know-how and experience of investigation is a must to make any technology work in the real world. Just as necessary is to combine experience with technological development. This is where RisikoTek comes in as a valued partner. RisikoTek has been combining investigation needs with technology into award winning software platforms like AMALIA. They have further increased technological tools for use by investigators over years since its founding.
This is early days for a 3 year project, but there is a keen spirit shown in the teams so far. The door is always open for more industry involvement as well. If you are a German business that has experienced counterfeiting and you do have information on how it was done, then please reach out to RisikoTek to see if you can join as an industry partner to ATTENTION!
