The vision of RED-Alert project is to develop a real-time system able to facilitate the timely identification of terrorism related content by summarizing data from social media.
To fight the war against terror, LEAs are increasingly relying on social media intelligence, a new field of intelligence covering a wide range of applications, techniques and capabilities analyzing social media data.
Addressing the needs and challenges, RED-Alert solution will cover a wide range of social media channels, in particular new channels such as Telegram and Periscope, which are increasingly used by terrorist groups to disseminate their content. The RED-Alert solution will allow LEAs to take coordinated action in real-time while preserving the privacy of citizens.
