The third and Final Field Test

During the ROXANNE project, three field tests have been organised. The first field test took place on 30 September 2020 online (due to the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions) and was organised by KEMEA. It presented the preliminary capabilities of the ROXANNE platform i.e., combining speech and text technologies along with network analysis methods. The second field test, was organised in hybrid mode (both onsite and online) by NFI on 8 October 2021, during which the platform’s latest capabilities and case scenarios were demonstrated.

The details about first and second field tests are available on our website.

On 6 October 2022, in Lyon, France, at the Interpol’s premises the third and final field test of ROXANNE took place. More than 50 participants attended the event, including ROXANNE partners, coming from various backgrounds: law enforcement officers, legal and technical experts, policymakers and researchers.

The objectives of the third field test were to showcase the latest ROXANNE capabilities and to present the platform’s mature capabilities alongside its performance and usefulness for solving criminal cases through streamlined data analysis. As done in the 2nd field test, specific police case scenarios were presented, including full complexity investigation use cases built around real data, provided by internal LEAs, and offered hands-on sessions for the participants to experiment with the platform functionalities.

The participants stated that the platform was fully understandable and stressed that they considered the functionalities presented being widely applicable and considered as innovative. At the same time, they indicated that more technologies would be of their interest if integrated in the platform and if it was available to process more languages. The participants also highlighted that ROXANNE platform is unique considering that it combines multiple technologies from multiple modalities and at the same time reduces time of the police investigations which would otherwise be done manually.
