ALEPH is a new open source software, developed by OCCRP data wizz Friedrich Lindenberg to do searches in unstructured data and documents. ALEPH does the indexing, searching and analysing for you. It has to be installed on a server and will be demonstrated on data.occrp.org, but others such as Süddeutsche Zeitung also use it in-house. In this presentation Friedrich will focus on the use of the tool. For interested programmers, here is the Github - https://github.com/alephdata/aleph, for further questions please contact Friedrich after the session.
