Patrick Skinner is a consultant with the Soufan Group, founded by Ali Soufan, the former FBI Special Agent tasked with investigating international terrorism after 9/11. Mr. Skinner uses his intelligence background and perspective to discuss the dangers that ISIS poses to U.S. interests. Born out of an umbrella organization of Al-Qaeda in Iraq, the so-called Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) burst onto the international stage after it seized Fallujah in December 2013. Since then, the group has seized control of a number of critical strongholds in the country and declared itself a caliphate. He is also concerned over what he calls “the new terror spectacular.” He predicts more limited terrorist attacks from small cells that still have the power to paralyze cities like Paris, Mumbai, or San Bernardino and create spectacular reaction. He believes this will happen more and more often, with world cities shut down by attacks that move across several locations.

These systems either rely on a centralized server for identifying friends based on social information or broadcast a user’s questions to all of its friends. Mobile Q&A systems, where mobile nodes access the Q&A systems through Internet, are very promising considering the rapid increase of mobile users and the convenience of practical use. However, such systems cannot directly use the previous centralized methods or broadcasting methods, which generate high cost of mobile Internet access, node overload, and high server bandwidth cost with the tremendous number of mobile users. We propose a distributed Social-based mObile Q&A System (SOS) with low overhead and system cost as well as quick response to question askers. SOS enables mobile users to forward questions to potential answerers in their friend lists in a decentralized manner for a number of hops before resorting to the server. It leverages lightweight knowledge engineering techniques to accurately identify friends who are able to and willing to answer questions, thus reducing the search and computation costs of mobile nodes. The trace-driven simulation results show that SOS can achieve a high query precision and recall rate, a short response latency and low overhead. We have also deployed a pilot version of SOS for use in a small group in Clemson University. The feedback from the users shows that SOS can provide high-quality answers.
