Joint venture between UK and Iceland sees global fight against child abuse and terrorism


Reykjavík, February 21, 2012

Today sees the launch of a new global venture and investment between Forensic Pathways Ltd (UK) and Videntifier Technologies ehf (Iceland), both of whom are known for innovation in the digital forensic market. This joint venture involves a major investment by both companies in bringing together and exploiting their 21st century technology to combat child pornography and terrorism. The new company will be headquartered in London with offices in Reykjavik, Iceland, Perth, Australia, Asia and North America.

The global significance of this joint venture was highlighted by the presence of the President of Iceland, Ólafur Ragnar Grímsson, and the UK ambassador to Iceland, Ian Whitting, both of whom witnessed the signing of the agreement between the companies.

Both companies have invested and developed cutting edge technology that automatically identifies illegal video content and digital image, applicable to child abuse and terrorist material. ” Police authorities still work very locally and are isolated from each other, while the crime scene is very well connected, globally,” says Herwig Lejsek, CEO of Videntifier Technologies, “Police efforts have been isolated because no tools have been available that can effectively handle large amounts of multimedia data in forensic investigations.” Dr. Richard Leary, MBE, of Forensic Pathways agrees: “Modern communication technology has resulted in billions of videos and still images being generated and shared daily. The challenge is the ability to use technology to automatically process enormous amounts of data and identify illegal content. This global venture provides the solution, speeding up investigation time and improving the working conditions for investigators, as well as ensuring the ability for cross border collaboration.”

This joint venture follows on from a successful period of collaboration between Videntifier Technologies and Forensic Pathways Ltd which has seen sales in the UK growing significantly in the first quarter of 2012.

“The global significance of this joint venture is that it effectively fast tracks technologies designed to protect the vulnerable ie our children, along with all countries committed to the fight against global terrorism” says Deborah Leary, OBE, CEO of Forensic Pathways Ltd. “This joint venture will ensure a stronger presence in the worldwide market and ensure that innovation is not only achieved but that it actually reaches the communities it is designed to serve.”

Richard Leary and Forensic Pathways is pleased to support important work on Evidence by William Twining, Philip David and Mimi Vasilaki

Richard Leary is pleased to support this important work on evidence. Richard Leary says…

“This book represents a new and evolving approach to evidence which is so very much needed inour globalised world. We are living in a world where our ability to produce information by whatever means (computers, people, machines, mobile, data etc) is not matched by our ability to manage and make sense of it. This book is an ideal reference and guide to any practitioner involved with processing or analysing data and across any professional sector. Phil is Professor of statitstics at Cambridge and has for many years promoted the greater use and understanding of formal approaches to the analysis of evidence. He is perhaps the worlds leading expert on the use of BAYESIAN statistics in evidential reasoning. William was Quain Professor of Jurisprudence at University College of London, Fellow of the British Academy and a Queens Counsel. He has promoted for many years the study of evidence as a discipline and is a world expert on Wigmorean approaches to the structuring of legal arguments.”

Edited by Philip Dawid, Professor of Statistics, University of Cambridge, William Twining, Quain Professor of Jurisprudence Emeritus, University College London, and Mimi Vasilaki.

Evidence – its nature and interpretation – is the key to many topical debates and concerns such as global warming, evolution, the search for weapons of mass destruction, DNA profiling, evidence-based medicine. In 2004 University College London launched a cross-disciplinary research programme “Evidence, Inference and Enquiry” to explore the question:

“Can there be an integrated multidisciplinary science of evidence?”

While this question was hotly contested and no clear final consensus emerged, much was learned on the journey. This book, based on the closing conference of the programme held at the British Academy in December 2007, illustrates the complexity of the subject, with 17 chapters written from a diversity of perspectives including Archaeology, Computer Science, Economics, Education, Health, History, Law, Psychology, Philosophy and Statistics. General issues covered include principles and systems for handling complex evidence, evidence for policy-making, and human evidence processing, as well as the very possibility of systematising the study of evidence.

The launch of the book is at 6pm on 29th November at the British Academy and we are proud to announce that we will be sponsoring the event.

 Any body interested in ordering the book please contact Forensic Pathways directly by calling 01827 255170
