Advise project

ADVISE is an innovative research project co-funded by the European Union in the Seventh Framework Programme for Research (FP7), aiming at providing national and local law enforcement authorities with an innovative tool for supporting them in following the criminal act trails, recorded by existing video surveillance system archives.
For demonstrating the potentiality of the tool, two pilots have been designed, aiming at addressing different needs and tracing different kind of events. Both of them and the ADVISE framework have been developed following a PIA (Privacy Impact Assessment) approach, ensuring the compliance with the privacy and ethical rules.




VideoSense, a Network of Excellence EU project co-funded by the FP7-Security Workprogramme, integrates leading European research groups to create a long-term open integration of critical mass in the twin areas of Ethically-Guided, and, Privacy Preserving Video Analytics.
