AI techniques to rapidly analyse Darknet forum conversations and market advertisements for potential threats
Situation assessment approaches support the analysis and identification of the nature (or goal) of a specific criminal action, as well as the risk (or threat level) associated to it, thus helping with prioritisation and to deal with large volumes of potentially relevant material that analysts have to scrutinise in their investigations. In this blog, Legind Technologies and Thales Nederland provide an overview of COPKIT’s Situation Assessment tools to analyse Darknet forum conversations and market advertisements for potential threats.
The COPKIT project focuses on the problem of analysing, investigating, mitigating and preventing the use of new information and communication technologies by organised crime and terrorist groups. For this purpose, COPKIT proposes an intelligence-led Early Warning (EW) / Early Action (EA) system for both strategic and operational levels. The project duration is 36 months (from 2018 to 2021).
