What is DS-Keywords?
DS-Keywords (Formerly DS-Voice) is a market leading AI platform that detects and identifies keywords and phrases in video and voice files. It empowers digital forensic analysts to process, transcribe and analyse audio files both manually and automatically and in bulk.
No data is retained by the platform; data is processed and returned to the end-user for secure hosting in a datacentre of their choice. It works on multiple languages and for dialects. From a delivery standpoint, it is a secure hosted platform and is accessed via a browser or via one of DS Compliance partners, for example i2, Bluelight LLC or IBM
Used in Public Sector by Police forces and in the commercial world, DS-Keywords addresses the key issues of faster persomance, lower overheads and better services.
- Speed: bulk screening of voice and video files is time-consuming and tedious. The platform allows the automatic identification of keywords within files which can then verified by an analyst who can focus on relevant areas
- Transcription & analysis: files are transcribed, and keywords or phrases flagged
- Easy navigation: there is simple navigation to key parts of the file; backwards and forwards between transcript and voice recording
- Distribution: files processed by the DS -Investigator platform can be forwarded to Investigation Teams for further action. This includes output reports for audit and disclosure
- Processing at high volume & speed: DS -Keywords processes quickly with consistently high keyword detection accuracy
DS-Keywords and Social Media monitoring
Social media is a global phenomenon and is used as a sales channel by business. Social media posts contain insights and information that are gleaned by monitoring and analysis.
DS-Keywords, the audio keyword identification and monitoring platform, fills this gap. Audio and videos posted on social media are collected and analysed for specific keywords and phrases. This can be achieved at high volume and with high levels of accuracy. This service is available in two forms: Police/Blue light support and monitoring the output of online influencers who have contracts with major brands.
For Social media influencers
Social media influencers are now common in certain sectors – for example, Retail.
Influencers post on different platforms frequently and paid by companies to mention certain brands in their posts. They are also contracted to avoid specific competitive brand names.
Additionally, a brand would want to monitor other posting by influencers to ensure they align to brand values and do not comment on controversial subjects.
Previously, the monitoring of such contracts was time consuming, incomplete and completely dependent on human intervention. DS-Keywords is now being used globally to monitor and detect keywords and phrases for several global fashion brands to ensure consistent compliance of their contracted influencers: This ensures that they mention keywords, avoid competitors and have early warning of other controversial postings.
Other possible applications for social media monitoring
One potential example of this is the detection and monitoring of agents and representatives posting commercial messages which encourage or promote grey market products (the selling of cheaper products intended for one market in another without permission from the manufacturer and against licence terms). In this case, audio and video posting can be collected, analysed and keywords and phrases monitored.
DS-Keywords for Law Enforcement
DS-Keywords enables users to process, transcribe and analyse audio files using Artificial Intelligence (AI) for keyword and phrase matching with built in templates and workflow for management, audit and disclosure.
The application dashboard manages the source audio and transcribed data files.
The dashboard displays transcribed text with highlighted keywords and the ability to jump to keywords within a source audio file.
Automated notifications alert users to matched keywords.
Cases are used to group audio files for management. Templates allow the generation of automated documentation for investigation teams and for disclosure.
DS-Keywords in operations
DS-Keywords is used to provide a service to well-known retail brands. This service is used to monitor social influencer contract compliance, who can be paid considerable amounts for their output. As social media promotion continues to grow as a sales channel, then ensuring value for money and compliance to contractual terms will require objective tools for analysis.
This service provides employers with a view of employee, candidate or client activity online.
