Application of Latent Semantic Indexing in Generating Graphs of Terrorist Networks
Understanding networks of connections among individuals is an important element of counterterrorism analysis. Determining nodes and links for such networks is one of the most labor-intensive aspects of counterterrorism analysis. This paper presents an automated approach for generating and displaying an initial estimate of nodes and links relevant to a chosen topic. This work combines the use of entity extraction and latent semantic indexing (LSI).
