Global Terrorism Database (GTDb)

NewImageI have built a prototype database of terrorists and their known associates, inferred associates, cutouts, and ghosts (AKA Global Terrorism Database). Using the Deep Web Intelligence Platform and many of the critical capabilities found in my enterprise data science framework, I have have managed to pull together an initial repository of bad guys and people associated with them that will globally scale. While having a composite database of known bad guys is important, what is really interesting is the list of previously unknown people that are associated with them – some of which I would have never guessed.

I want to know if this is important and why. If you have any thoughts, please let me know (datascientistinsights@gmail.com).

  1. The University of Maryland has a global terrorism database:
    http://www.start.umd.edu/gtd/

    It goes back to the 1970s, and I believe it was seeded from a composite of several historical databases. It would be worth comparing yours to theirs.

  2. Did you compare your results to work being done over at UMD Maryland, START Global Terrorism Database http://www.start.umd.edu/gtd/

  3. No, but I will. Thanks for insight.
