Workshop semantic multimedia analysis for researching violent online political extremism content

12:00 - 13:00 hrs
North America Room

The VOX-Pol Network of Excellence (NoE) is a European Union Framework Programme 7 (FP7)-funded academic research network focused on researching the prevalence, contours, functions, and impacts of Violent Online Political Extremism and responses to it.

Within the VOX-Pol project we are working on the development of innovative technologies for semantic analysis of multimedia from heterogeneous online information sources. Our developed technologies should significantly improve the researchers' ability to engage in rigorous, large-scale, empirical research of violent online political extremism as well as the comparative analysis of the online strategies different extremist groups apply. In this presentation we will provide a brief overview of our research and demonstrate its applicability in the analysis of online extremist communities.

Serena Oggero (TNO) is the co-moderator of the workshop. She will coordinate the interactive session at the end of the workshop
