Cognitiks ran models on domestic terrorism and commonly hypothesized correlates ahead of the Digital Forum on Terrorism Prevention 2018. We leveraged our modeling capabilities with data from the University of Maryland’s START program on Profiles of Individuals Radicalized in the United States to showcase the power of advanced data analytics in identifying factors involved in radicalization of individuals to commit acts of terror.

The research explores various correlates including geographical distribution, mental health and psychosocial issues at the individual level, as well as similarities between radicalization to violent extremism and incidences of (non-terror) mass gun violence.

The research findings, part of our “Technology for Social Good” program will be released shortly. Subscribe below to have the findings delivered to your inbox.
