In a perfect world, we would be able to predict violent protests before they ever happened. Social Oracle is taking us one step closer to that world.
Fredericksburg, VA (PRWEB) December 01, 2014
The Social Analysis and Intelligence Group (SAIG) announced today that it is working to bring Social Oracle, a sentiment-analysis system, to market by January 2015. Social Oracle is the first software of its kind, designed to inform decision-makers about trending social behaviors, particularly those that lead to civil unrest and violence.
Using a proprietary algorithm, Social Oracle collects information from social media to identify troubled areas and predict social violence before it occurs. The first prototype is already in action, using real-time social media data. Social Oracle also discovers, tracks, and forecasts violent criminal organizations and terrorists, putting the power of prediction and control in the hands of governments at every level.
“With increasing social unrest and erupting civil violence, government and police organizations around the world need to stay as up-to-date as possible,” said SAIG Founder Dr. Michael Toney. “In a perfect world, we would be able to predict violent protests before they ever happened. Social Oracle is taking us one step closer to that world.”
Dr. Toney pointed to violence that has flared up around the globe over the past year – from highly organized attacks by ISIS, to the Umbrella Movement in Hong Kong, to disparate riots in the American South. “Prediction is a promising step forward for our nation and the global community,” he added.
