About the webinar

Since 9/11, strategic surprises have accumulated and accelerated rather than receded – and they show no signs of stopping. The focus has shifted to asymmetric threats, battles in the cyber domain and to populations – more connected now than ever before – using social media to spark real-world revolutions.    

While these issues aren’t new, the application of artificial intelligence and other innovative technologies to augment our ability to solve them is. Agencies around the world now have more information available to them than ever before. But making sense of this information – and using those insights to inform and guide investigations and enforcement – can be a challenge.

Improving strategic early warnings and threat assessment capabilities requires collaboration, a shift in attitudes and positions (political, diplomatic and military) as well as an understanding of underlying influences, including fake news, propaganda and extremism.

In this webinar, our in-house expert will explain how artificial intelligence, machine learning, natural language processing and social network analysis can help:

  • Understand causes supported by rogue groups or communities.
  • Identify and investigate potential threats. 
  • Prevent and contain violence escalation. 
  • Disrupt organized crime and organized violence.
