Rashid – The role of language in cybercrime investigation

The FORGE is pleased to announce our upcoming internal speaker: Prof Awais Rashid (Computing & Communications; Security Lancaster). Details of his talk are below:

The role of language in cybercrime investigation

In this talk I will reflect on experiences in two large-scale projects and discuss the challenges of analysing online activities of cyber criminals. I will then highlight how advances in computational analysis of natural language can help overcome these challenges hence providing a new and powerful tool in the arsenal of cybercrime investigators. Both projects have seen real-world deployments, so the talk will cover both scientific value of linguistic analysis in this context and insights from practical experiences in law enforcement settings.

1500-1600, Tue 02nd Feb, County South B89

Lancaster University staff members and students are welcome to attend.
