This attack highlights the devastating impact of Boko Haram and ISWAP, two extremist groups that have terrorized northeastern Nigeria for over a decade. Despite military efforts, these militants continue to target civilians and destabilize the region.



iCognitive offers a novel approach to combating terrorism by analyzing brainwave activity during questioning. Individuals are presented with stimuli related to potential threats, such as extremist videos, bomb-making materials, or specific attack plans. iCognitive then measures the P300 wave, a well-documented brain response that occurs when someone recognizes familiar information. By analyzing these brainwaves, iCognitive can potentially detect hidden knowledge or involuntary responses that a suspect might not consciously reveal. This technology could be a game-changer in identifying those susceptible to radicalization and preventing future tragedies.

iCognative’s potential to identify those vulnerable to radicalization, screen for potential attackers, and support investigations could be a valuable tool in the fight against suicide bombings and violent extremism.
