|Filename Ballistics||Given a filename, identify the type of camera or online service that generated the picture. The current solution is applicable over 60% of the time, and averages over 95% accuracy.|
|Prohibited Content Detection|
(aka "anti-porn filters")
|The public FotoForensics site prohibits pornography, nudity, and sexually-explicit content. This research project is designed to rapidly identify prohibited content. The current solution can be generalized into any kind of rule-based automated content detection.|
|Trend Detection||Identify news before it is reported as news.|
|Precog||Most users just want to use the site, but some want to attack. Can we reduce our attack surface or identify attackers before they attack?
|Similar Picture Search||Given a picture, quickly find other visually-similar images. We are developing a variety of picture search engines. The fastest so far is also one of the best: it can compare nearly 3 billion signatures per second (single-threaded and without special hardware) -- nearly 3000x faster than PhotoDNA (on the same hardware) and just as accurate.|
|Forensic Tool Usability and Simplification||Digital photo forensics is a complicated topic. What can be done to lower the learning curve and increase accuracy for the analyst?|
|Data Visualization||How do you visualize results and identify trends?|
|Network Distribution||People have been talking about IPv4 address exhaustion and the migration to IPv6 for decades. But how many systems actually use IPv6? Are there any common issues related to IPv6?|
|Browser Profiling||Different browsers support different features. If we want to support the most common browsers and service providers, then what functionality should we support?|
