The Fight against Terrorism
Collecting viable and relevant information about suspicious parties is difficult when large amounts of unstructured data of various types circulate, originating from heterogeneous sources and often in multi-lingual forms.
The wide variety of communication channels (social networks, press, internet, etc.), mentioning ‘terrorist’ or ‘attack’, contain almost unmanageable amounts of anonymous data, making the detailed analysis increasingly difficult. The main aim in the fight against terrorism is knowing which individuals are active and ready to conduct an attack. This can be done through the analysis of their network and internet activity.
