Use Social Media platforms data to map links between illegal organisations
Links obviously exist between illegal organizations; may they be terrorist groups, extremist movements, or organized crime. This research project asks: Is it possible to map these links by using web and social media content and actions performed on these platforms? Students will have to identify accounts on social media platforms, perform content extraction, and find ways to visualize connections. This interdisciplinary activity requires building a framework to identify information sources and accounts, as well as designing and developing a suitable graph visualization tool.
