Default Using big data to fight ISIS

Actually the full title of the article, on Strife - a Kings War Studies blog - is 'Turning technology from an asset into a liability: using big data to fight ISIS' and this post will be copied to the ISIS & Media thread later.
Link:https://strifeblog.org/2016/04/01/tu...to-fight-isis/

The author's arguments are weakened IMHO by sentences like this:
Quote:
However, sketching using big data analytics can define some widely-valid characteristics. For instance, ISIS recruits tend to be predominantly young and male and the ones originating in the EU and the US tend to come from a middle class background, with a high level of education.
Really? We need 'big data' to tell us that?

So IARPA facial recognition programme exists, but human can be an alternative as today's story shows, with the Met Police in London:http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016...ucci-caught-b/

There are those, also @ Kings, who have found terrorist use of the Dark Web is not that great:http://www.scmagazineuk.com/report-t...rticle/485969/

Default Moderator's Note

There are a number of recent posts, mainly from SWJ Blog, on 'big data' in the context of urban operations or in mega-cities on the thread: Urban / City Warfare (merged thread)

Or:http://council.smallwarsjournal.com/...p?t=310&page=7

I have amended the thread's title from Intelligence, Data and COIN adding CT.
