The Netherlands Forensic Institute (NFI) commissioned the development of Bonaparte. A combination of domain
knowledge the NFI provides and powerful algorhythms SMART Research, acting as commercial entity Big4Data, has
developed a reasoning and learning model. The developed model is able to recognize human beings by using DNA
and family ties. The model has been integrated in the NFI working processes and is used on a daily base. With
help of Bonaparte all victims of the Tripoli (2010) and the MH17 (2014) plane crashes have been identified.
Additionally, a Dutch murder case (the Vaatstra case - 2012) has been solved and a serial rapist in Utrecht
was tracked (2014).
Big4Data was responsible for the development of this application. Starting with design and ending with a
complete implementation. The project encompassed several years. Big4Data is also responsible for periodical
maintenance and support of Bonaparte.
