The SPIRIT project, funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, was launched in August 2018 and ended in October 2021.
The project took a novel approach in the development, testing, training and evaluation of a new scalable privacy preserving intelligence analysis for resolving identities system prototype. It delivered a set of tools for the acquisition, analysis, modeling and visualization of multimodal, multilingual and multimedia data. The result is a platform that allows to create social graphs of heterogeneous named-entity relationships and to perform social and criminal network analysis on those graphs. The SPIRIT platform was developed within privacy by design and privacy through design processes assisting LEAs in unraveling the hitherto complex world of identity resolution
