What AI means for open source intelligence investigations
20 April, 2020
CameraForensics is delighted to announce that it is amongst the 2020 winners of Britain’s most prestigious business accolade.
We have been rewarded for our work helping law enforcement to detect and prevent online crime – particularly child sexual exploitation – with a Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation.
CameraForensics is one of 220 organisations nationally to be recognised with a Queen’s Award for Enterprise. As a winning business, we will be able to use the esteemed Queen’s Awards emblem for the next five years.
Founder, Matt Burns, said: “It’s an honour to receive a Queen’s Award. Our core mission is to help law enforcement safeguard more victims of child sexual exploitation. We hope exposure from this prestigious accolade will help us to continue achieving that.”
Commercial Director, Dave Ranner, said: “Our whole team is very excited to receive this award. We are a company of technology innovators, but our inspiration comes from our users and collaborators around the world who take the tools that we develop and use them to safeguard children.”
Formed in 2011, the CameraForensics team has developed an open source tool that crawls the internet and image databases to provide intelligence to investigators working in child victim identification. The system also proactively alerts investigators to new digital evidence leads and fresh intelligence on unsolved cases.
Circumstances permitting, we will celebrate our award during a royal reception for Queen’s Awards winners in the summer.
