’Field research and a focus on the young could help combat terrorism’
A new paper in Science says field research on the ground with youths engaged in violent extremism or susceptible to it is needed to improve the West's understanding of  terrorist groups like Islamic State and Al Qaeda. The paper says such research could harness machine learning and techniques more commonly used in public health research like epidemiological modelling.  The paper argues that the US government's national security systems are too structured around state to state interactions which are more suited to the Cold War than modern-day threats.
