In recent years, given the sudden rise in threats on social networks, law enforcement agencies are starting to see the power of harnessing social media data to generate actionable intelligence before catastrophes occur. But unfortunately such an approach has had its limitations.
In particular, we are entering a new age where Artificial Intelligence (AI) is taking over daily life with Apple, Facebook, Google, Shell and many other companies dumping billions of dollars into AI to create solutions that make intelligent decisions for us. And while all of this innovation is occurring, many organizations are still stuck using outdated technologies to solve some of the biggest problems in the world today, including the rise of social media threats.
When it comes to law enforcement agencies, most see how critical social media threat intelligence is, however extracting the right nuggets of information while drowning in false positives presents a serious challenge. That is where AI enters the picture.
Soteria Intelligence has been working on R&D aimed at using AI combined with proprietary algorithms to create social media threat assessment technologies that can truly understand conversations taking place, the difference between “I have a bomb” and “dinner was the bomb,” associations with criminal organizations based on linguistic patterns, and more.
Our mission is to replace technologies currently used by law enforcement agencies (and corporate/private security teams) that scrape social media for combinations of keywords, bursts of activity under hashtags and other indicators of activity/influence. We are delivering the next generation of technologies with the ability to make more objective, intelligent decisions based on a variety of data points instead of primarily subjective decisions, which are open for interpretation.
