When a forensic event of large scale happens, immediately visual content related to it is shared on social networks. These data might be important for a posterior forensic inspection, given that they can depict different views in different moments of the event. However, an analysis of social media imagery related to an event might be harmed by the abundant number of irrelevant items retrieved by a collection procedure, such as memes and images from previous events. Manually sanitizing these datasets is unfeasible, as they might contain thousands of items. To tackle this problem, we study designing and developing machine learning techniques to speed up the procedure and reduce the required human force. In detail, we target including humans in the loop of the machine learning pipeline, by employing instance selection and active learning techniques, and performing classification with few annotated samples, employing as starting point semi-supervised techniques that vary from graph-based to self-training methods. These two paths are promising and can improve the performance of methods for this task. (AU)
