FileTSAR, an all-in-one cybersecurity toolkit developed by Purdue Polytechnic researchers and their colleagues, is helping detectives dust for digital fingerprints.
A new automatic T-valve system for firefighting robots could make firefighters’ jobs less dangerous and save public lives, according to Eric Dietz.
Drones and other autonomous vehicles come with a threat potential, according to Eric Matson.
Creating artificial intelligence (AI) that can help police determine which online threats to children require investigative priority is incredibly difficult, according to #PurduePolytechnic's Julia Rayz and Kathryn Seigfried-Spellar.
Kathryn Seigfried-Spellar, assistant professor of computer and information technology, and Julia Rayz, associate professor of computer and information technology, have developed the Chat Analysis Triage Tool (CATT), a program that uses natural language processing techniques to analyze conversations between minors and child predators.
Work with stakeholders across public and private sectors to solve challenges in cybersecurity and critical infrastructure that affect global economies, security and health. We aim to enable law enforcement agencies to provide faster, more efficient incident response, to lower the number of cyberattacks and lessen their impact to victims, and to enact evidence-based policies that contribute to safety and security.
Teaching computers to understand jokes and humor is a funny business, according to Julia Rayz, associate professor of computer and information technology. Rayz is trying to help computers understand and interact with people as naturally as people interact with each other.
Airport runways become unpredictable with winter precipitation. Mary Johnson, associate professor of aviation and transportation technology, worked with a student team to propose the adaptation of remote sensing technologies used for glaciers and ski resorts to measure snow and ice. Over 10 years, this technology could save $500,000 at Purdue’s airport.
Law enforcement agencies have been relying on forensics tools not well suited to today’s digital world. To provide a modern, cost-effective solution, a research team led by Kathryn Seigfried-Spellar, assistant professor of computer and information technology, is building File Toolkit for Selective Analysis & Reconstruction (File TSAR) for Large Scale Computer Networks.
Eric Matson, associate professor of computer and information technology, collaborates with a research team to develop drones that are capable of gauging the threat of an unknown gaseous plume. This technology will be able to measure densities, detect the plume gases, and map the shape and location of the plume, then send information to first responders.
