Some subjects require close scrutiny. Our clients need to monitor developments at home or abroad to make the right decisions for the near and long term future. Two interlinked subjects we closely monitor are radicalisation and terrorism. Even though accurate data is crucial in making the best decisions, we go much further than engaging in academic analysis. Through the aid of modern mathematical algorithms, it is possible to move past monitoring to making predictions: who are the most likely suspects? What is the most effective way to weaken a network? And what for example is the safest and quickest way to evacuate an area?
