BISS: AI in investigations

Everyone is talking about AI. But it needs Henk van Ess to make good, if not the best, use of it for investigations purposes. He will show you his ideas and the best tools available. He will probably (again) announce his resignation after this workshop, because he could be replaced by AI. But we are sure that Henk will continue and develop faster than any AI can imagine.
