Alessandro ZANASI, Text Analytics/Mining in Security
Text Analytics/Mining is currently seen as a central technology to protect EU citizens against terrorism and organized criminals and, generally, for Security applications. One integrated project (about 10 M$) dedicated to develop new text mining based Intelligence applications has just been funded by European Commission and other ones, always text mining based, are expected to be funded in 2009. ESRAB before and ESRIF now are pointing these technologies as among the ones to be funded in the next years in Europe to foster EU Intelligence capabilities.
