The Social Analysis and Intelligence Group (SAIG) seeks to help government, military, police, and emergency services detect civil unrest before violence breaks out with a unique new software, Second Sight.
FREDERICKSBURG, Va., May 7, 2015 — The Social Analysis and Intelligence Group (SAIG) announced today that it is offering a limited number of trial and paid licenses for Second Sight, its flagship sentiment analysis software. Second Sight is the first software of its kind, designed to inform decision-makers about trending social behaviors, particularly those that lead to civil unrest and violence.
“Had Second Sight been used before the events leading up to the riots in Ferguson, and now Maryland, it could have identified the specific areas where violence was imminent, providing street-level granularity when available,” said SAIG Founder, Dr. Toney. “Second Sight could have measured the reaction and level of aggression following statements by State officials, indicating the likelihood of continued violent behaviors, helping to protect the hundreds of local businesses destroyed during the civil unrest.”
Using a proprietary algorithm, Second Sight collects information from social media and other sources to identify troubled areas and predict social violence before it occurs. Second Sight is market ready, and SAIG anxiously awaits turning on the social media firehose for its first clients. Second Sight also discovers, tracks, and forecasts violent criminal organizations and terrorists, putting the power of prediction and control in the hands of governments and first responders at every level. Second Sight now includes cluster mapping of natural disaster warnings, virus outbreaks, international crime, uniform crime reporting and much more.
“With increasing social unrest and erupting civil violence, government and police organizations around the world need to stay as up-to-date as possible,” said Dr. Toney. “In a perfect world, we would be able to predict violent protests before they ever happened. Second Sight is taking us one step closer to that world.”
Dr. Toney pointed to the violence that has flared up around the globe over the past year – from highly organized attacks by ISIS, to the Umbrella Movement in Hong Kong, to disparate riots across the United States. “Prediction is a promising step forward for our nation and the global community,” he added.
