    How do people become terrorists? How can they be stopped? Prof. Neumann, Director of the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation, King's College London, presents an overview of the radicalisation process. Using Western homegrown terrorism as an example, this presentation shows what contribution data analytics, especially Palantir, can make to disrupting the process. It also touches on challenges and unsolved problems, especially internet-driven radicalisation processes and 'lone wolf' attacks.

    Contributed by Ismael Jaime Cruz. He is currently in the NYC Data Science Academy 12 week full time Data Science Bootcamp program taking place between April 11th to July 1st, 2016. This post is based on his first class project - R visualization (due on the 2nd week of the program). Over the past year, terrorist incidents have been growing by the numbers with attacks hitting different regions including Europe, Africa, and the Middle East. In November 2015, Paris was hit by the Islamic State and produced a death toll of at least 130, stirring sympathy and outrage from the global community. In other areas such as Nigeria, casualties from terrorist attacks were estimated to have been in the thousands.

Journalists, governments and the billions of people posting and snapping ideas everyday have created an overcrowded information space primed for a hostile takeover.

  • Global Terrorism

    Terrorism is a well known global phenomenon which has been around since the beginning of recorded history. The word, terrorism has been widely defined leading to at most ambiguity - a crime and a holy duty; a justified expression of oppression and an intolerable, unacceptable showcase of atrocity. Though the multitudes of terrorism are well justified by perpetrators, anything sabotaging the coexistence of peace among people has to be looked upon. The responsibility to act against terrorism is not only lying with the governments and defense departments of the world but it also lies with everyone of us. All of us can play our part to contribute towards a unified goal of anti-terrorism. In order to achieve this we believe that "Awareness" is definitely a control mechanism to mandate a unified...

  • Global terrorism - 1970 to 2014

    This shows the number of terrorist attacks in each country, month by month, from 1970 to 2014. The data is taken from the University of Maryland Global Terrorism Database (http://www.start.umd.edu/gtd/). The number of attacks is shown with a "temperature" visualisation from dark blue = very cold/no attacks through light blue and yellow to red = very hot/many attacks. I transformed the data to a logarithmic scale, since the number of attacks has increased dramatically and, on an ordinary, linear scale, the attacks of earlier decades would hardly show up. The plot also shows the moving average, rather than the actual number of attacks each month, thereby giving a smoother progression.

www.PeoplesInternetRadio.com Wed 3/15/17 w host Catherine April Watters William Binney and Dr Robert Duncan. Binney- client of GAP and National Security Agency (NSA) whistleblower who worked at the agency in excess of 36 years. As Technical Director, Binney developed a revolutionary information processing system called ThinThread that, arguably, could have detected and prevented the 9/11 terrorist attacks, but NSA officials ignored the program in favor of Trailblazer, a program that not only ended in total failure, but cost taxpayers billions of dollars. Concerned over national security, Binney and Wiebe blew the whistle on the mismanagement over Trailblazer, using internal channels to share their concerns with Congress and the Department of Defense Inspector General (DoD IG). Despite their efforts, no one was held accountable at NSA for one of the worst intelligence failures in history. Little did they know at the time, Binney and Wiebe would face harsh retaliation from NSA for their efforts to make the truth known. After the failure of U.S. intelligence to prevent the events of 9/11, the NSA wrongfully applied a component of the ThinThread system to illegally spy on the private communications of U.S. citizens. Unable to stay at the NSA any longer in good conscience, Binney and Wiebe retired in October 2001. After retiring, Binney and Wiebe continued to blow the whistle from outside the agency. GAP provided Binney and Wiebe with legal advice on whistleblowing matters and assisted them with media and public advocacy. Since that time, Binney and Wiebe have made several key disclosures crucial to the ongoing public debate about America's national security state, such as the first public description of NSA’s massive domestic spying program, Stellar Wind, which intercepts domestic communications without protections for US citizens. Binney revealed that NSA has been given access to telecommunications companies’ domestic and international billing records, and that since 9/11 the agency has intercepted between 15 and 20 trillion communications. Binney further disclosed that Stellar Wind was grouped under the patriotic-sounding “Terrorist Surveillance Program” in order to give cover to its constitutionally-questionable nature. Dr. Robert Duncan is an Ex-CIA black project scientist who figured out they were targeting innocent people domestically and became a whistleblower. He has some great advice for targeted individuals and some great information in some areas. http://www.drrobertduncan.com/dr-robert-duncans-neuropsychological-and-electronic-no-touch-torture-report.html Please support Independent Media !

Terrorism is a well known global phenomenon which has been around since the beginning of recorded history. The word, terrorism has been widely defined leading to at most ambiguity - a crime and a holy duty; a justified expression of oppression and an intolerable, unacceptable showcase of atrocity. Though the multitudes of terrorism are well justified by perpetrators, anything sabotaging the coexistence of peace among people has to be looked upon. The responsibility to act against terrorism is not only lying with the governments and defense departments of the world but it also lies with everyone of us. All of us can play our part to contribute towards a unified goal of anti-terrorism. In order to achieve this we believe that "Awareness" is definitely a control mechanism to mandate a unified international response. Hence we are making an effort to increase understanding of terrorist violence to all through this opportunity so that it can be more readily studied and defeated.

This shows the number of terrorist attacks in each country, month by month, from 1970 to 2014. The data is taken from the University of Maryland Global Terrorism Database (http://www.start.umd.edu/gtd/). The number of attacks is shown with a "temperature" visualisation from dark blue = very cold/no attacks through light blue and yellow to red = very hot/many attacks. I transformed the data to a logarithmic scale, since the number of attacks has increased dramatically and, on an ordinary, linear scale, the attacks of earlier decades would hardly show up. The plot also shows the moving average, rather than the actual number of attacks each month, thereby giving a smoother progression.
