As the need to monitor ever-increasing amounts of information, the need to fact check continues to grow. It is important for analysts to stay ahead of the information curve; an analysis based on yesterday’s news may be erroneous, especially in the case of key information changes. Today, individual users must manage their own updates, which means logging into the wiki and checking the update logs. In a large wiki, this is a time-consuming process, which analysts cannot afford to engage in on top of their other daily duties. This proactive monitoring of the wiki detracts from their more important analysis duties. In response to this need for rapid context in information dissemination, 21st Century Technologies, Inc. (21CT) proposes SWIFTER – Semantic Wiki Infrastructure for Faceted Tracking of Entities and Relations, a system that provides this level of automated support. SWIFTER employs semantic resources and technologies, similarity measures, and user feedback through an intuitive dashboard interface to enable context-aware intelligence to analysts and warfighters. SWIFTER draws from the collective experience of commanders, analysts, and warfighters to provide timely alerts to others at the same echelon and/or in the same area of responsibility (AOR).
