Book Description

June 5, 2006 0471776157 978-0471776154 1
Explores both counter-terrorism and enabling policy dimensions of emerging information technologies in national security

After the September 11th attacks, "connecting the dots" has become the watchword for using information and intelligence to protect the United States from future terrorist attacks. Advanced and emerging information technologies offer key assets in confronting a secretive, asymmetric, and networked enemy. Yet, in a free and open society, policies must ensure that these powerful technologies are used responsibly, and that privacy and civil liberties remain protected.

Emergent Information Technologies and Enabling Policies for Counter-Terrorism provides a unique, integrated treatment of cutting-edge counter-terrorism technologies and their corresponding policy options. Featuring contributions from nationally recognized authorities and experts, this book brings together a diverse knowledge base for those charged with protecting our nation from terrorist attacks while preserving our civil liberties.

Topics covered include:

  • Counter-terrorism modeling
  • Quantitative and computational social science
  • Signal processing and information management techniques
  • Semantic Web and knowledge management technologies
  • Information and intelligence sharing technologies
  • Text/data processing and language translation technologies
  • Social network analysis
  • Legal standards for data mining
  • Potential structures for enabling policies
  • Technical system design to support policy

Countering terrorism in today's world requires innovative technologies and corresponding creative policies; the two cannot be practically and realistically addressed separately. Emergent Information Technologies and Enabling Policies for Counter-Terrorism offers a comprehensive examination of both areas, serving as an essential resource for students, practitioners, researchers, developers, and decision-makers.

4.0 out of 5 stars DARPA CT Programs and a Little Law February 12, 2007
Format:Hardcover
Popp and Yen have presented a the final reviews from a series of Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) programs with some additional emergent math models and three chapters on Law, Privacy and the need for legal standard in the application of the emergent technologies. A better approach may have been to put the chapters on Law, Privacy and so on first. Then, to allow or require the authors of the remaining chapters to consider and comment on the effect of law on technology, as well as technology on law.

This is a fine, if somewhat dated, review of emerging information technologies. The explanations vary from excellent to prolix. The book is as overpriced as most textbooks and may find use as an upper level survey course on the presented material.
