We’re thrilled to share our recent success at the AI Festival powered by wemakefuture AG, where Agenfor International showcased groundbreaking advancements in 3D technology fused with artificial intelligence (AI). As Agenfor International, we unveiled the BIGOSINT Project, where 3D technologies and Virtual Reality (VR) were effectively deployed to train Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs), intelligence analysts and other public and private experts. The project garnered significant interest, with attendees captivated by our seamless integration of AI into 3D landscapes.

Our team in Milan rose to the occasion, customizing a dynamic exhibit that showcased the intersection of 3D VR and AI within the BIGOSINT Project. Visitors were impressed by the immersive experience and the insightful interaction with AI-equipped avatars!

The in-presence Project Kick-Off Meeting took place on the 10th and 11th of May, hosted by the Euroarab Foundation in Granada, Spain. The meeting was jointly carried out by the EU-funded STAND-UP project.

Partners exchanged thoughts, ideas for what concerns the technical aspects, communication strategies and the future steps of the project. The second joint-day aimed to enhance an understanding through a brief training given by the persons of concern on the use of open-source intelligence, which is highly relevant for the duration and the outcomes of both projects. Furthermore, Agenfor International introduced its Virtual Reality training in order to support the understanding of the training methodology that both projects will apply in a later phase, allowing them to contribute to the development of the training and its implementation in a more effective manner.

Second Steering Committee Meeting

Second Steering Committee Meeting

23th of June 2023 Bremen, Germany

The partners of BIGOSINT, met on 22 June in Bremen, Germany for the second Steering Committee Meeting of the project.

The project, which started in January 2022 and will end in January next year, aims to improve investigations into human trafficking on the internet by analysing how the characteristics of the cyber environment affect the Human Trafficking chain. For that purpose, BIGOSINT combines technological tools such as OSINT and cryptocurrency analysis with the FAST platform to detect existing online markets and networks, collect human-rights compliant digital evidence, share information and develop enforcement countermeasures by leveraging on public-private partnership.

During the meeting there was a review of the project management and coordination carried out by the Public Prosecutor’s Office of Trento, coordinator of the project. Each member updated the status of the different work packages, such as the sustained service delivery led by HFÖV, the dissemination strategy, sustainability and transferability of BIGOSINT as well as the integrated FAST platform for cybercrime investigation, management and coordination, led by AGENFOR, or the work package led by the Euro-Arab Foundation, dedicated to understanding the investigation cycle of Human Trafficking. The session will end with an open debate and final conclusions.

Currently, training sessions are being jointly prepared in the framework of the BIGOSINT and UNCHAINED projects, which will take place on 11 and 12 of July in the city of Murcia, Spain, and on 19 July in Bremen, Germany, for law enforcement and judicial officers. The training consists of practical sessions where participants will be trained in the use of the technological tools OSINT and the FAST platform. In addition, a Virtual Reality immersion will be carried out to combat the chain of human trafficking in cyberspace.

After these trainings, the tools involved will be tested for 5 months by the security forces in order to implement them on a daily basis and thus improve their skills in the fight against trafficking in human beings.
