Abstract

Security and INTelligence SYStem is an Italian research project which aims to create an integrated system for the analysis of multi-modal data sources (text, images, video, audio), to assist operators in homeland security applications. Within this project the Scientific Research Unit of the University of Palermo is responsible of the image and video analysis activity. The SRU of Palermo developed a web service based architecture that provides image and video analysis capabilities to the integrated analysis system. The developed architecture uses both state of the art techniques, adapted to cope with the particular problem at hand, and new algorithms to provide the following services: image cropping, image forgery detection, face and people detection, weapon detection and classification, and terrorist logo recognition. In the last phase of the project we plan to include in our system new services, mainly oriented to the video analysis, to study and understand the behaviour of individuals, either alone or in a group.
