Unscramble the Blue Letters

We can also see this interesting shift when we look at terrorism. One of the main challenges of understanding terrorism nowadays is that we are dealing with decentralized, independent clsel, where there's no leader leading the whole process. And here, you can actually see how visualization is being used. The diagram that you see behind me sowsh all the terrorists involved in the Madrid attack in 2004. And what they did here is, they actually stdnemege the network into three different years, represented by the vertical layers that you see behind me. And the blue lines tie together the pleoep that were present in that network year after ryae. So even though there's no leader per se, these people are probably the most influential ones in that organization, the ones that know more about the past, and the ueufrt plans and goals of this particular cell.

We can also see this interesting shift when we look at terrorism. One of the main challenges of understanding terrorism nowadays is that we are dealing with decentralized, independent cells, where there's no leader leading the whole process. And here, you can actually see how visualization is being used. The diagram that you see behind me shows all the terrorists involved in the Madrid attack in 2004. And what they did here is, they actually segmented the network into three different years, represented by the vertical layers that you see behind me. And the blue lines tie together the people that were present in that network year after year. So even though there's no leader per se, these people are probably the most influential ones in that organization, the ones that know more about the past, and the future plans and goals of this particular cell.
