Did you ever wonder …
If the person flying into your country at a particular date every month is visiting
his company’s headquarters?
" but the date sometimes falls on a weekend…
If the irregular high banking transaction of a certain person is related to an
inheritance from his just passed away mother?
" or from the art theft last week…

Sure, you are able to answer these questions
But do you have
- the time ?
- the staff to follow every seemingly unimportant hint ?

Imagine …

… to get a report within minutes:


Track all major contact persons of the main militant group in the
country using this data sources:
- E-mail, Fax, SMS
- Phone calls
- Bank transfer data
- Flight booking details
- Credit Card records



Identify new suspicious persons and organisations regarding money
laundering.



Which suspect person or group shows a different behaviour today
compared with the normal behaviour?

Intelligence Applications
Intelligence Mining: Pattern Profiling

Principle:


Pattern Profiling includes patterns with
- behavior
- communication
- movement
- relationship



A target usually has its individual behavior which only changes slowly
over time



Sudden changes in target behavior
- Generates an alarm
- Draws the analyst’s attention

Intelligence Applications
Rule Based Queries

To construct complex database queries without database knowledge



The analyst constructs a semi-graphical model of the query



The system retrieves all instances from the database that fulfil the Rule

Suspect A

Owner



Account A

Example:
$20,000

Search the database for all
occurrences where two suspects

b) use a bank account to transfer
money via a third party

$20,000
Suspect B

Intelligence Applications
Indexing: Full Text Indexing and Retrieval



Indexing is performed on all sorts of text documents, like
- Web pages
- Word documents, Transcripts
- Emails, SMS, Chat protocols
as well as on data base records in general



The Indexing process constantly runs in the background



The analyst can quickly search in a Google-like manner for words or phrases



Typical response time < 1 sec

Intelligence Modules
Topic Spotting in the text domain

How does it work?


The Analyst defines a number of topics, e.g.:
- Drug Trafficking
- Corruption
- Money Laundering
- Kidnapping



The analyst provides sample documents containing typical
contents for each topic



The Intelligence Module is trained on the samples



After training the Intelligence Module classifies documents
with unknown contents according to the trained classes



Topic Spotting is language independent
