Investigate how to improve not just the precision and accuracy of networkconfiguration tools but also how to qualitatively expand the scope of whatsorts of conditions of interest they report, by incorporating a largecommonsense knowledge base to enable reasoning about network functionality. Current… More

Knowledge Based Data Monitoring for a Joint/Coalition Environment

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2001 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$97,672.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator:
Chip Masters, Ontological Engineer
Abstract:
Our objective is to determine the feasibility of, and optimal design for,the incorporation of a large body of formalized common sense knowledge intoan information integration, filtering, and dissemination tool, in support ofa multi-force coalition. With this substrate of knowledge, it is possible… More

Knowledge Based Data Monitoring for a Joint/Coalition Environment

Award Amount:
$750,000.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator:
James (Chip) Masters, Ontological Engineer
Abstract:
"We propose to develop a knowledge based application for informationfusion and data monitoring. The Cyc Monitor will provide the end userwith the capability to seamlessly integrate multiple, semanticallyhetergenous data bases and knowledge sources within the Cyc knowledgebase, define high-level… More

Knowledge Engineering Environment for Army Intelligence Analysis and Interpretation

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$69,880.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator:
Michael Witbrock, VP Res. & Dir. Knowledge
Abstract:
Traditional methods for constructing knowledge-intensive systems have relied heavily on intervention from artificial intelligence specialists. The first step in this intervention is typically either: extensive human-directed interviews of subject-matter experts so that the knowledge can then be… More

Leadership Agent for Multi-source Information Fusion in Counter-Terrorism

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$99,869.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / OSD
Principal Investigator:
Michael Witbrock, VP Research & Dir. Know.
Abstract:
Current document search techniques are inadequate to handle queries whose answer requires establishing links among a number of (potentially obscure) facts. We propose to remedy this situation with a prototype system that applies statistical and knowledge-based methods to the problem of identifying… More
