We know that it's not just about data: it's about people. Behind massive data streams are the individuals who create them. Whether it's a dealer behind hundreds of serial numbers, a criminal behind thousands of financial transactions, or a victim behind millions of online ads...we use AI to pinpoint the person in the data.

The AI solutions we deploy help law enforcement, government, and the private sector identify and combat criminal activity. Our solutions empower data-driven, people-centric responses in the modern age.
