Mediterranean stability threatened by violence, hatred, piracy and cross border crime

January 26, 2018 | Brainwave Science



The Secretary-General of the United Nations warns Security Council that the Mediterranean region is facing a lot of threats. Signalizing a global junction that can prove to be in the detriment of the entire world, Antonio Guterres mentions among these problems illicit trade in narcotics, weapons, and petroleum, large movements of refugees, piracy, violence against women, environmental degradation and other regional wounds.

Due to all the instability in areas like Libya, Sahel or Egypt, an increase in irregular migration towards Europe has been detected. There are a lot of security challenges, such as transit of weapons and fighters through Libyan and Sudan borders. The Syrian conflict determines the Islamic State to thrive.

Each of these problems only births new problems in many states facing the same challenges and threats.

Approaches to security challenges in the Mediterranean were undertaken largely or solely through traditional security arrangements or ad hoc solutions, which can more than often make the situation worse. Efforts to achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development had an important role to play in that regard, said Guterres.




Council President Angelino Alfano, Minister for Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation of Italy determined in a recent speech that there is a need for improvement of intelligence worldwide, in order to stem terrorism and all other problems. By going directly to the root of the issue, there is a real chance from the authorities’ part to address these problems and gain real results. Cultural collaboration can also help stabilize the region, as all this is happening at a conjuncture point of mutually enriching cultures, societies and economies.




With so many social and political challenges in the Mediterranean region, there is a real need of strategic improvement. Instead of dealing ad-hoc with every crisis, authorities need to go the root of the problem. With breakthrough applications in its levels of accuracy, reliability, and zero false positives and negatives, iCognative offered only by Brainwave Science is an important security solution that helps achieve counterterrorism goals.

The technology used can detect in a subject’s brain the information he’s been holding back, previous acts of transgression and accurately and safely screens suspects using an infallible witness—the human brain- to stop terrorists, transnational criminals, and wanted individuals before violence or crime can occur.

The technology used in iCognative can also be used to help preserve and protect human rights, by identifying threats and stopping them before it happens. iCognative can detect information, using an advanced semantic memory-related brain response, called P300. When contact with or membership in a particularly hostile intelligence agency is suspected, a iCognative test will flash probe stimuli such as identities, names, photographs, methods of communication, meeting places, code words, dead drops, names of handlers and contacts, to detect the presence or absence of that information.

By using this technology, authorities are able to determine threats and gain information that is essential in order to fight back the current situation.
