How a Storyteller Catches a Terrorist

Peter de Kock, a filmmaker turned law enforcement professional, developed a model based on narrative scenarios to predict criminal behavior, particularly terrorism. He founded Pandora Intelligence to apply this model practically. By analyzing police data as stories, he condensed them into twelve main narrative components. Underneath these, over 200,000 subcomponents form a graph. 

With a vast data set, including real incidents and creative works, AI techniques help detect knowledge rules and predict new incidents. The system successfully identified a bomb factory dismantling in Syria involving a Dutch jihadist, leading to his arrest. The model’s value lies in connecting incidents over time, enabling efficient and effective crime anticipation.
