INFINITY aims to transform the traditional idea of criminal investigation and analysis using immersive and collaborative environments. INFINITY's concept is based around four core research and technical innovations that together, will provide a revolutionary approach and convert data into actionable intelligence.

INFINITY is the idea that immersive reality, whether virtual, augmented or mixed, is a game-changing approach to collaborative, interactive data analysis through the entire intelligence cycle.


INFINITY's approach is that analysis must be immersive and collaborative. INFINITY will provide a virtual environment that will be accessible by remote participants. 


Effective interaction is essential for INFINITY to deliver a truly immersive and collaborative product. This will be achieved through the use of innovative mechanisms that will enable users to fully engage with INFINITY and the task in hand.


INFINITY will develop a Virtual Investigative Assistant (VIA) to provide automated assistance to investigators and enable analysts to tailor data visualisations to meet their specific needs.
