Data Science Tools
TF1621 is working with Seattle based data science company, RivalAnalytics, which supports the investigation through innovative data analytics technologies.
‘Social Media Fingerprint’ technology that recognizes patterns and characteristics of an individual’s public social media posts. This will enable the drawing of data-driven links between an individual’s public posts and their anonyms posts, which tend to be far more incriminating but difficult to trace due to the highly anonymous nature of some platforms.
Social Media Impact Analysis: enables the mapping and measurement of the impact of specific social media posts, establishing a data-driven correlation between posts by high-profile individuals and the subsequent actions of those that directly participated in the siege on the US Capitol.
