Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research position(s) in the Centre for Cybersecurity & Cybercrime Investigation working on the H2020 funded INSPECTr project. The principal objective of INSPECTr will be to develop a shared intelligent platform and a novel process for gathering, analysing, prioritising and presenting key data to help in the prediction, detection and management of crime in support of multiple agencies at local, national and international level. This data will originate from the outputs of free and commercial digital forensic tools complemented by online resource gathering.
Using both structured and unstructured data as input, the developed platform will facilitate the ingestion and homogenisation of this data with increased levels of automisation, allowing for interoperability between outputs from multiple data formats.
Various knowledge discovery techniques will allow the investigator to visualise and bookmark important evidential material and export it to an investigative report. In addition to providing basic and advanced (cognitive) cross-correlation analysis with existing case data, this technique will aim to improve knowledge discovery across exhibit analysis within a case, between separate cases and ultimately, between interjurisdictional investigations.
INSPECTr will deploy big data analytics, cognitive machine learning and blockchain approaches to significantly improve digital and forensics capabilities for pan-European Law Enforcement Agencies.
