Webinar of February 24th 2021 with Morand H. Fachot: Effective OSINT and BI in the Context of AI: Will the Human Factor Remain Essential ?

Swissintell Webinar - Morand H. Fachot

In spite of major and continuous technological advances, the human dimension will remain central to effective OSINT and Business Intelligence for the foreseeable future. Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) having played a central role in intelligence gathering for decades is more and more used for Business Intelligence (BI). No longer relying only on traditional sources, both trawl a wider range of sources from the web. Technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning will boost OSINT and BI effectiveness. Yet the human dimension and traditional sources will remain central to effective OSINT and BI. Perspectives and testimony of Morand Fachot.

He is a journalist and Independent Contractor working on geopolitical and media issues for BBC Monitoring (BBCM).
