Improved Magnet.AI Results for Video
The vast amount of media and data sources that need examining for criminal investigations can make searching for potential evidence a time-consuming task. Machine learning and image recognition tools can help to identify and categorize content of interest so examiners can more quickly uncover the key evidence needed for their cases.
In this release, we have significantly improved the accuracy of the Magnet.AI media classifiers for short videos, with the most notable improvements to videos under 2 minutes in length. Based on our internal testing, we improved the accuracy of detecting matches with the media classifiers by an average of 70%.
Magnet.AI is an artificial intelligence tool built into AXIOM that searches and flags potential content matches in the media in your cases. With 15 categories of classifiers in Magnet.AI (view the complete list of examples here – customer credentials required), this feature can have several applications but is especially useful for investigations involving CSAM, child abuse, drugs, or weapons, helping you quickly review content to uncover critical evidence needed for your cases.
New Magnet Idea Lab Beta – Magnet Exhibit Builder for AXIOM
We have recently introduced a new, free Beta version of MAGNET Exhibit Builder that is designed to be a companion platform to AXIOM. Exhibit Builder is a desktop reporting/building tool that helps you effectively tell the story of your digital forensic findings.
MAGNET Exhibit Builder combines forensic data from AXIOM case files with standard word processing tools, allowing you to build comprehensive reports for a range of audiences easily. The intuitive drag-and-drop functionality will enable you to place artifact details directly into your report, maintaining the integrity of the forensic data while integrating elements like visual previews for media-based artifacts and device summary details to provide stakeholders with clear and efficient reports.
