Scientific summary

Dr. Guidere is the founder of the predictive linguistics in 2006 while he was professor at the French Military Academy of Saint-Cyr and director of the Strategic Information Analysis Unit.

In 2015, he published a book in French that summarizes his work on predictive linguistics: "La Linguistique predictive: de la cognition à l’action", one of his numerous writings on language and security. Guidere had already previously written many publications discussing the role of linguistic markers in the prediction of violent actions. Some of these previous publications include “Rich Language Analysis for Counterterrorism” and the detection of suicide bombing plans through the predictive analysis of suicide bombers’ notes and “testaments”.

In 2011, he published the paper "Computational Methods for Clinical Applications: An Introduction", in which he also coined the term "cognitive computing”. Soon after, he developed, with Prof. Newton Howard, LXIO: the Mood Detection RoboPsych.

By the end of 2012, the field had attracted the attention of many people and started to grow. He has been keynote speaker at the International First Responder Military Symposium and the organizer of the European Symposium on Psycho-Trauma and PTSD.
