Applying Critical Thinking to Achieve Investigative Success in the Age of AI
Artificial Intelligence is increasingly making its way into our day-to-day lives. From writing tools, to deepfakes and image recognition—these advancements bring major advantages as well as previously unimaginable challenges. In this climate, critical thinking has never been a more valuable skill for investigators. Flashpoint is thrilled to be joined by David Toddington, founder and CEO of Toddington International, to provide foundational techniques for applying critical thinking to open-source intelligence investigations.
In this session, we’ll cover:
- Common investigative failures through the lens of critical thinking
- Tactical tools and techniques that mitigate common cognitive biases
- Tips and techniques to identify deepfakes and manipulated images and videos.
