Rapid detection of compact binary coalescence with a network of advanced
gravitational-wave detectors will offer a unique opportunity for
multi-messenger astronomy. Prompt detection alerts for the astronomical
community may make it possible to observe the onset of electromagnetic
emission from compact binary coalescence. We demonstrate a computationally
practical filtering strategy that could produce early-warning triggers
before gravitational radiation from the final merger has arrived at the
