Under this SBIR program, Lakota Technical Solutions, Inc. (Lakota) will develop the Semantic Cloud Cognitive Concept Mapping (SC3M) technology for Concept Map development from Resource Description Framework (RDF) data stores. This technology provides the ability to: (1) develop concept maps from a cloud-based RDF data store using cognitive models developed with the Goal-Directed Task Analysis (GDTA) methodology, (2) enable exploratory and query-based development of concept maps using user-supplied context and focus questions, and (3) provide an intuitive and clear conveyance of knowledge expressed as a concept map. Our approach will leverage a previously developed cloud-based RDF data store as well as existing cognitive models for Army and Air Force Intel Analysts to provide a capability for the user to build context-relevant knowledge around meaningful relationships in support of the development of actionable intelligence.
