Rapid Identification of Asymmetric Threat Networks from Large Amounts of Unstructured Data
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
21st Century Technologies (21CT) proposes PRESAGE, a fast, mobile, and robust computational tool for automated analysis of extremely large sets of unstructured information to assist commanders in proactively responding to asymmetric threats. Understanding and influencing the sympathies of the populace is an important tool in counter-operations against asymmetric threat. Yet, strong indications of the attitudes, sympathies and hostilities within the populace often go unexploited. There is a vast amount of data that is available on the internet in unstructured form, for example, in the form of blogs. However, this data is currently untapped due to the intractability of using traditional, linear computational or manual methods on datasets of this magnitude. Commanders require new, innovative solutions that can digest this wealth of information and rapidly provide assessments of the threat presented to friendly forces by belligerent elements of the indigenous population. PRESAGE provides a novel solution to process the immense and continually expanding quantity of available data.
