Almost daily we are reminded of just how important social media threat intelligence is ranging from the Ohio State University attack that occurred earlier in the week where threatening posts were made on Facebook to ISIS regularly flooding Twitter with hateful propaganda. Given the steady increase in online threats since 2012 and subsequent loss of life, clearly more has to be done.
At Soteria Intelligence, we’ve made it our mission to develop the most cutting edge social media threat intelligence technologies available today with the goal of making the world a better, safer place. Since day one we have focused on research and development to not only solve immediate problems, but also those that may surface in the future.
Using a blend of deep learning and machine learning along with proprietary algorithms and software, we have created a true marriage between man and machine where subject-matter experts train supercomputers to become more intelligent and effective at analyzing data than any human could ever be, which is exciting.
And most importantly, we have worked hard to remove bias so threatening behaviors themselves spark alerts while race, color, religion and other factors have no role. As decent human beings we can agree that all lives are important whether it’s groups exercising their right to protest, police that work hard everyday to keep people safe or innocent students going to school to learn and reach for their dreams.
Detecting false positives, understanding sarcasm, utilizing historical data on past threats to help predict the future, and more – these are the complex problems the Soteria Intelligence team has worked so hard to solve. And we did it.
