New Forensics Tools Will Speed the Identification and Rescue of Children Pictured in Child Sexual Exploitation Material

Researchers at the New York University Tandon School of Engineering and the digital intelligence tech company Griffeye have begun building a sophisticated suite of tools to be provided pro bono to law enforcement officials seeking to identify children in child sexual exploitation material (sometimes referred to as child pornography) and rescuing victims. The National Institute of Justice, a division of the U.S. Department of Justice, awarded the project $465,000 over three years.

Their team is consulting with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Child Exploitation Investigations Unit.
