The University of Amsterdam
(UvA) is the Netherlands' largest university, offering the widest range of academic programmes. At the UvA, 30,000 students, 6,000 staff members and 3,000 PhD candidates study and work in a diverse range of fields, connected by a culture of curiosity.
The Faculty of Science
has a student body of around 8,000, as well as 1,800 members of staff working in education, research or support services. Researchers and students at the Faculty of Science are fascinated by every aspect of how the world works, be it elementary particles, the birth of the universe or the functioning of the brain.
The mission of the Informatics Institute
(IvI) is to perform curiosity-driven and use-inspired fundamental research in Computer Science. The main research themes are Artificial Intelligence, Computational Science and Systems and Network Engineering. Our research involves complex information systems at large, with a focus on collaborative, data driven, computational and intelligent systems, all with a strong interactive component.
The Multimedia Analytics Lab Amsterdam
(MultiX) is a research group within the Informatics Institute at the University of Amsterdam. In MultiX we research multimedia analytics by developing AI techniques for getting the richest information possible from the data (image/video/text/graphs) interactions surpassing human and machine intelligence, and visualizations blending it all in effective interfaces for applications in health, cultural heritage, forensics and law enforcement.
Next to participating in the AI4Forensics Lab with NFI, MultiX also takes part in AIMlab and Police Lab AI. All three labs are strongly embedded in the larger UvA and Amsterdam artificial intelligence ecosystem with strong connections to multiple Innovation Centre for Artificial Intelligence
(ICAI) and the UvA's Data Science Centre
The research agenda of the Netherlands Forensic Institute
(NFI) Digital Forensic Investigation focuses on the development of new methods, tools and procedures for obtaining and processing digital material for the purpose of investigating and providing evidence in criminal cases.
