Pattern-based data mining is most likely to be useful when training sets are available; there are supplementary tasks for which data mining tools might be helpful that do not require a training set. At the same time, the utility of pattern-based data mining, without a training set, to identify patterns indicative of individuals and events worth additional investigation, is very unclear. Although there is no a priori argument that categorically eliminates pattern-based data mining as useful tools for counterterrorism applications, considerable basic research will be necessary to develop operational systems that help to provide a prioritization of cases for experts to examine in more depth.
