On 29 July 2022, the TRACE project technical partners (AIT) and socio-legal research partners (Coventry University and VICESSE) met at the Austrian Institute of Technology in Vienna.
At this meeting, AIT presented the infrastructure and hardware of the TRACE technical /AI solutions and demonstrated their use and development in various scenarios, such as terrorist financing on the dark-web, illicit money flows and transactions on the surface-internet. The discussions around the AI tools and their applications inspired questions and the partners explored further use cases for the AI solutions as well as the limitations of the current technological state of the art.
Finally, the meeting enabled the socio-legal partners to have a better understanding of the use and usability of AI informed data analysis in action rather than as a merely theoretical concept. This led to a discussion on how the TRACE solutions can best be optimised for Law Enforcement Agencies and how user interfaces for forensic practitioners ought to be designed.
