Intelligence agencies develop 'terrorist Facebook' to find links between key players

12:33 by Editor · 0 Post a comment on AAWR

Intelligence agencies are using a complex computer programme to build up a Facebook-style database that will help establish the links between international terrorists.

By analysing the social networks that exist between known terrorists and suspects and even innocent bystanders, military leaders hope to open a new front in the "war on terror".

They plan to amass intelligence on a large range of people, even those who seem obscure or irrelevant, and feed it into a computer which will use an algorithm to investigate associations or connections that could be missed by a human.

The intelligence agencies are gleaning the raw data from multiple sources including information from interviews with suspects captured in the field and telecommunications data collected from emails and telephone calls.

When the information is fed into the computer programme it can help identify key figures in terrorist organisations and predict attacks before they happen. continues here
