Open Source Research Group

Open Source @ King’s – Politics, Policy, Practice

The Open Source Research Group conducts policy-relevant research and training on issues relating to the exploitation of open source information, particularly online, for investigative and intelligence-related purposes. The group’s work is strongly interdisciplinary and brings together experts from the Department of War Studies and the Department of Informatics at King’s College London. Key areas of research include:

  • Ethical issues associated with the collection and analysis of open source    information
  • Tensions between automated approaches and the contribution of human     analysts
  • Implications of open source capabilities for organisations, professions and governments
  • Disinformation, deception and the provenance of data
  • New tools and techniques for exploiting analytical opportunities online

The group is chaired by Dr Matthew Moran (War Studies) and Dr Elizabeth Sklar (Informatics). Research activities are coordinated by Dr Jack McDonald.
