Chiliad's Phase II effort will implement and test enhancements and extensions of automated metadata generation capabilities designed in Phase I, and the tight integration of those capabilities with other software systems and applications. Some of the results of Chiliad’s SBIR funded efforts have already been deployed in operational production systems across the FBI, within new releases of the Bureau’s enterprise license to Chiliad Discovery, serving the analysis needs of over 10,000 analysts and agents. The enhanced Chiliad Discovery software provides enterprise-wide data fusion; contextual search; full text concept mining; dynamic analysis; on-the-fly concept recognition; dynamic knowledge discovery and navigation; and task-driven collaboration across decentralized servers and distributed data collections located on different systems in different organizations. Users can analyze over 500 million full-text messages, documents, and Oracle database records simultaneously over a secure network. The proposed SBIR Phase II enhancements will include 1) the capability to import and export standards-based ontologies; 2) user-friendly tools for customer sites to create and customize new named entity extractors for XML standard compliant use with automated metadata generation; 3) Web Services and API extensions; and 4) tight integration with analysis, visualization, collaboration, Arabic and other foreign language morphological software, and other software packages, including particular software packages being used in the AFRL Collaborative Gateway (CG) Project to address multi-level security needs across security classification boundaries.
