Intelligence in Context

How the police service can use modern network analysis techniques to gain a more complete picture of the data available to them


About the webinar

Network analysis is an appealing approach when trying to identify and understand activities involving multiple associated parties. As a basis for that a reliable set of relationships is required. Entity resolution is an approach that can support this but also brings benefits in building a complete picture of a person. This includes all the data available both internally within an organisation but also to make better use of externally sourced data.

There are many approaches to this, during this webinar we’ll look at some of the challenges faced when using this in real systems where the data quality is imperfect, data integrity is essential and valuable information is stored in disparate systems.
