Orsay - December 9, 2016

Vocapia is participating in the EU H2020 DANTE project

Vocapia is participating in the EC project DANTE "Detecting and analysing terrorist-related online contents and financing activities". The project is funded under the FCT Innovation Action "Law Enforcement capabilities 2: Detection and analysis of terrorist-related content on the Internet" of the European Union Horizon 2020 research programme. DANTE started in September 2016 and will run for a period of 30 months.

The main objectives of the DANTE project are to carry out research and develop technologies for more effective, efficient, automated data mining and analytics. These activities will result in an integrated system to detect, retrieve, collect and analyse huge amount of heterogeneous and complex multimedia and multi-language terrorist-related contents, from both the Surface and the Deep Web, including Dark nets.

Vocapia will work on developing speech and audio technologies to enable detection, analysis and monitoring in unstructured audiovisual data, helping investigators to classify documents and search into their content. In the context of this project, Vocapia will focus on language identification and code switching, acoustic event detection and speech-to-text transcription in several languages, including Italian, Spanish, English and Portuguese.
