AI Use Case

Track and predict risk of likely criminal activity by individuals

Predict risk of illicit activity or terrorism using historical crime data, intelligence data and other available sources (e.g. predictive policing). Largely based on tracking network traffic, most obviously social media and telecoms activity, to predict likelihood and risk of potential terror-related criminal activity. The techniques will also reveal potential suspects. Similar techniques may be used to track other "undesirables" - including pro-democracy protesters in more repressive regimes.
