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
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Chip Masters, Ontological Engineer
Award Amount: $97,672.00
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 Year / Program / Phase: 2002 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: James (Chip) Masters, Ontological Engineer
Award Amount: $750,000.00
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
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Michael Witbrock, VP Res. & Dir. Knowledge
Award Amount: $69,880.00
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
Agency / Branch: DOD / OSD
Principal Investigator: Michael Witbrock, VP Research & Dir. Know.
Award Amount: $99,869.00
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

Collaborative Sense Making

Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Nick Siegel, Sr. Member, Technical Staff
Award Amount: $99,182.00
Abstract:
Analytical tasks at the all-source level, and above, generally require access to intelligence distributed among a variety of forms: structured databases with differing schemas, electronic maps with various metadata schemes, and textual reports in multiple languages. Knowledge bases that employ… More

Semantic Knowledge-based Decision Support

Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Larry Lefkowitz, Executive Director
Award Amount: $96,673.00
Abstract:
In any complex environment - such as managing a battlespace, launching a satellite, or operating a global enterprise - critical decisions depend on a broad range of information sources, decision-making guidelines, and an array of operational and environmental factors. These challenges highlight the… More

Semantic Knowledge-based Decision Support

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Douglas B. Lenat, President and CEO
Award Amount: $740,125.00
Abstract:
The US Air Force 45th Space Wing is a prime example of a multi-faceted organization responsible for rapidly making complex and critical decisions on a regular basis. Despite substantial documentation and training, decision-makers sometimes lack timely access to some key information. Furthermore,… More

AIMSMART: Adaptive, Interactive MDA Semantic Model-based Articulation of Required Technology for M&S

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Research Institution: George Mason University
Principal Investigator: Douglas B. Lenat, CEO – (512) 342-4001
Award Amount: $99,956.00
RI Contact: Tod S. Levitt
Abstract:
The process of an MDA stakeholder specifying a needed modeling and simulation system has many problems: they may be ambiguous, overly specific, overly general, contradictory, etc. Symbolic knowledge-based representation and reasoning systems have matured to the point where they can ameliorate this.… More

AIMSMART: Adaptive, Interactive MDA Semantic Model-based Articulation

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / STTR / Phase II
