August 2, 2018 | Brainwave Science
Police reported that 18 people were killed and 15 were injured as a result of a terrorist attack. Among the killed victims were a police officer and a woman. 9 injured people were discharged from a provincial hospital after receiving treatment. The attack took place near a government office building in Jalalabad, an eastern town in Afghanistan on Tuesday.
According to an official statement, the terrorist attack started after one terrorist detonated a car bomb near the gate of the provincial department of refugees and repatriation at around midday. Officials informed ‘One terrorist was killed by his car bomb blast and two others who made their way inside the building were shot dead by Afghan Special Operations Forces during a counter-attack which ended Tuesday evening.’
No terrorist organization has claimed responsibility for this attack yet. Besides, it’s not a first attack in the region in the last weeks. The previous attack happened on Saturday when 2 security guards and a driver were killed, and 8 people were injured.
Terrorism is one of the biggest problems of the 21st century. Unfortunately, people face this problem worldwide and it takes the most important thing that we have – the life. Horrible attacks happened all over the world despite the endless fight against terrorism. Every country tries to protect its citizens from this tragedy by providing different levels of security in all possible areas of life.
Terrorism, unfortunately, isn’t a new problem for Afghanistan. The country has been suffering from this ‘evil’ for many years. The latest attack in Jalalabad shows again that officials should improve their methods in the war against terrorism. There should be no doubt about the fact that modern technologies can help them to provide safety and security in the region.
Today, iCognative by Brainwave Science is one of the best available investigations and security solutions that can help in the war against terrorism. It is a unique test that can determine whether specific information is stored in the brain of the suspect. The technology can be used in various areas such as Law Enforcement, Border Security, Counterterrorism, and Trafficking, presenting invaluable results for investigative officers all over the world.
iCognative gains its unique value from its capacity to distinguish between an innocent and a perpetrator. The test offers agents the means to benefit from a scientific and objective means to resolve who exactly the perpetrators and accomplices are and their level of participation in any given crime and most importantly it can help exonerate innocents. Besides, compared to other technologies that can’t produce accuracy levels of 99.9%, iCognative delivers.
In only 15 minutes, the iCognative test can be built with information from the case that is known only to investigative agents and terrorists. This information will be inputted into the iCognative system and be used as stimuli (in the form of pictures, words, and phrases). For example, in this case we can use the date and time of the attack; the name and pictures of the place where it happened; information regarding a type of the used bomb and the process of its making; names and pictures of known partners in crime etc., provided that some details are still confidential. Those stimuli will be flashed on a screen to the suspect and a special headset will record brain responses to each of stimulus. At the end of the test, the fully automated system will determine with 99.9% accuracy if the hidden information about the terrorist attack is stored in the suspect’s brain.
With the help of iCognative, the war against terrorism can become more effective and faster. iCognative can be very well utilized as a key to dismantle terrorist organizations and defend Afghanistan as a nation from terrorist attacks.
