ADVISE is a European project with the goal of designing and developing a production, editing, management and selective search platform of surveillance footage. The project tries to deal with the increasingly imperative need for the provision of automated and smart surveillance solutions.

This need results from the constant development of heterogeneous surveillance systems, which are growing in scale.

The main challenges that the project has to face are the variety of surveillance systems, the different compression formats of the videos and the different indexing systems. Moreover, it takes into account all legal and ethical issues regarding privacy of personal data, as well as the rules that govern surveillance and the produced content.
In order to deal with these challenges, the project introduces a set of innovative techniques at various levels, such as the semantic enrichment in analyzing and interpreting videos, ontologies for user rights, security in communication etc.

NEUROPUBLIC, actively participating in the project, has a leading role in the safe and effective “orchestration” of all subsystems that comprise it. Moreover, having great experience in networks and services for managing sensitive data, implements the subsystem Access Negotiator – System Orchestrator.

The Review of ADVISE by the European Commission (EC) was conducted successfully in March 2015. The result of the very good performance of the team that was in charge and carried out the project excellently, a particularly flattering review by the EE.
