This article deals with the use of social media by terrorist groups as a means to curry support, fundraise, recruit, and spread ideology.
This short diagram and explanation briefly introduces researchers to the adaptive event-profiling tool STEER that can be used for event detection. The technology allows for emerging event detection through event tracking on social media, and for personalization through the ranking and clustering of social media posts. The tool was tested during the 2014 Winter Olympics, the 2014 Silverstone F1 Race and World Rowing Championship 2014.
This brief diagram and explanation will be of interest to researchers looking into event detection techniques and offers a very brief introduction to the STEER technology.
