COMBATING TODAY’S CRIMINALS 

Law enforcement, intelligence and security agencies are facing increasingly sophisticated criminals and threats. To tackle these emerging threats, agencies are collecting massive amounts of data, but humans alone are not capable of sifting through it all. Many crimes could be predicted or solved if this data was accessible.

 

 

CONNECTING THE DOTS

Fifth Dimension’s innovative solution is changing the game by transforming the unknown into actionable intelligence. The platform integrates data from any database, any source, and in any format including structured data and unstructured data such as photographic evidence, geographic information, and forensic data. All of the data is fused, processed and stored in one central location, and the technology then generates meaningful connections between entities. Officers and agents can access the data and insights at any time, gathering the information they need through a user-friendly platform.

 

 

THE FIFTH DIMENSION EDGE

Fifth Dimension’s investigation platform is highly customizable and adaptable, with the ability to meet the needs of any law enforcement or security agency. It automatically analyzes data and sends alerts when new insights are discovered. Officers and agents can use the full range of advanced technologies and a suite of investigation tools to query the data further, enabling them to make better, faster, data-driven decision. Predicting, investigating and solving crimes as well as managing incidents can all be significantly improved with Fifth Dimension’s investigation platform and automatic insights.

USE CASE 1

EXPOSE AND PREVENT TERROR-RELATED RECRUITMENT ACTIVITIES

The Internet’s ease of access, allowance of anonymous communication, global reach and virtually unregulated environment are readily exploited by terror groups to fundraise, spread propaganda and hunt for potential recruits. The recruitment process involves social media activities performed via fictitious accounts and fake profile images, encrypted messenger apps, anonymous web forums and radical websites regularly used for recruiting purposes.

The Background

The Internet’s ease of access, allowance of anonymous communication, global reach and virtually unregulated environment are readily exploited by terror groups to fundraise, spread propaganda and hunt for potential recruits. The recruitment process involves social media activities performed via fictitious accounts and fake profile images, encrypted messenger apps, anonymous web forums and radical websites regularly used for recruiting purposes.

 

The Challenge

National security agencies are dealing with the challenge of processing huge amounts of collected data including thousands of suspicious accounts and massive amounts of unstructured data in the form of call recordings and video surveillance. Locating connections and insights, and predicting threats when time is critical, is a high-stakes mission of the utmost importance.  Using traditional methods is not enough when the data is massive, and terror groups are developing more sophisticated approaches.

 

The Solution

Fifth Dimension’s investigation platform integrates all of the structured and unstructured data to expose terror-related recruitment activities. Utilizing advanced search techniques, clustering, audio analysis and computer vision, Fifth Dimension can isolate an initial list of suspects.  Further investigation using pattern recognition and risk profiling enables analysts to narrow down and extract concrete leads involved in recruitment activities. The search mechanism is intuitive and fast via the advanced insight-driven platform. Additionally, the analyst can search all social media profiles within a targeted area that follow radical activities. Once suspects’ regular patterns are identified, any anomalies or pattern changes such as new routines, new connections, etc., are automatically detected to highlight potential risks. These investigation capabilities and more can be used to detect and expose terror recruitment activities as well as to act to prevent them.

USE CASE 2

APPREHENDING CRIMINALS AND SOLVING CRIMES

Law enforcement agencies today face unprecedented challenges when it comes to identifying criminals and building cases against them. With crime on the rise and criminals finding more sophisticated ways to communicate and remain under the radar, agencies need to find new methods for tracking criminals, connecting them to case information, and discovering insights to solve cases efficiently.

The Background

Law enforcement agencies today face unprecedented challenges when it comes to identifying criminals and building cases against them. With crime on the rise and criminals finding more sophisticated ways to communicate and remain under the radar, agencies need to find new methods for tracking criminals, connecting them to case information, and discovering insights to solve cases efficiently.

 

The Challenge

Law enforcement officers must manage and conduct complex investigations, however much of the examined data exists in separate databases within various departments. Complicating the matter further, the data lies in both structured formats such as warrants and location data as well as unstructured formats such as surveillance videos, photographic evidence, voice recordings and more. It is nearly impossible for detectives, analysts, and other personnel to manually access, search and correlate data to find hidden relationships and uncover networks. As solving crimes is of the utmost importance and often time sensitive, the use of proper tools to manage and investigate them quickly is critical.

 

The Solution

Leveraging the most advanced AI and deep learning technology, Fifth Dimension’s platform can fuse any amount of data, from any source and process data in any format, so that unstructured data such as voice recordings, text, images, and video become just as accessible and searchable as structured data. Fifth Dimension’s solution identifies entities across all data types to automatically generate fully comprehensive profiles for suspects, weapons, auto vehicles, mobile phones, organizations and more. These entities are linked to each other through insights from structured and unstructured data, generating a full link analysis map between system entities. The platform detects patterns and anomalies to reveal irregular location and communication behaviors performed by suspects and groups. The solution performs risk analysis automatically in order to determine the threat level of each entity in the system, based on irregular activities and behaviors of suspects and targets. A variety of AI methods are embedded in the platform to extract insights from structured as well as unstructured data. For example, voice recordings are analyzed with speaker recognition technology to create a unique voice signature and identify different entities in the system. All of the fused data, alongside various insights, is viewed through a single comprehensive investigation platform. Fifth Dimension’s solution automatically generates insights and reveals hidden links, enabling law enforcement to act upon information, arrest suspects and build strong cases against them, all in record time.
