The Possibility of Citizen Intelligence

The Possibility of Citizen Intelligence

This event was streamed live on Wednesday 4 September as part of the Digital Politics seminars series.

For the last two years, the SWARM Project has been designing and testing a platform to improve the quality of reasoning in intelligence analysis. The research coincidentally discovered that there are many people outside intelligence organisations that are willing and able to conduct intelligence analysis. In this seminar Dr. Richard de Rozario discussed the ways citizens participate in intelligence analysis which was previously the domain of government and corporates.
