Data mining for terrorism: is it working?
Some people think that data mining can be used for terrorism and other not.
A team of researchers at Queen’s University think that the first case is the most likely to be true. An interesting article about their work can be found here. Although not technical, this article explains that the lab uses data mining for terrorism among others. The Prof. of the lab even states that “sophisticated data mining is likely the most promising way of combating small and irregular terrorist groups“. This team strongly believes that data mining can be used for terrorism. We will see in a future post, that some people do not agree at all. Meanwhile, you can have a look at this post on Abbott Analytics.
