Investigation teams at UNITAD collect a large amount of evidence from recovered devices such as images and text. Typically, content moderators manually examine each file and tag it based on their interpretation of the content. This process was time consuming—a particular challenge for UNITAD given the significant amounts of digital devices and other evidence that are collected by the team on a regular basis.


UNITAD built a platform for analyzing evidence at scale, allowing for secure upload and preparation of raw data for processing. Azure cognitive service then quickly “looks inside” the recovered files to identify relevant information and label the data with insights, enabling the investigative teams to process the evidence more quickly and effectively.
