The project PRACTICIES mobilizes networks of European cities, experts from the fields of humanities, political sciences, information sciences to better understand the human roots of violent radicalization and to characterize these processes starting by their origins and to build concrete tools and prevention practices. Gradiant is part of this project as an expert in digital technologies applicable to the prevention and detection of radicalization. Gradiant will contribute its text mining technology based on natural language processing. Furthermore, Gradiant will also provide computer vision technologies to automatically analyze images and videos. This technology will complement the early detection or suspicious activities monitoring tools.
