Abstract

Intelligence analysts are faced with the demanding tasks of identifying suspicious patterns in large volumes of complex, disparate information sources and predicting numerous possible outcomes based on perceived patterns. The challenge is in transforming information from these unstructured and massive collections into small and precise chunks suitable for reasoning. This effort will develop the Advanced Neurophysiology for Intelligence Text Analysis (ANITA) system that utilizes the neurophysiological approach developed in Phase I to assist intelligence analysts in achieving profound improvements in their ability to objectively capture information of interest to their current hypotheses or focus. The ANITA system will include electroencephalogram (EEG), eye-tracking, and heart rate technology to capture points of interest during the forging process in text analysis, and will display collected snippets (both conscious and unconscious) into a virtual shoebox application where the information snippets are organized, associated with each other and logical reasoning is visually supported to better form hypotheses and reach conclusions. By monitoring decision-making processes through (neuro-)physiological sensors and implementation of real-time strategies for mitigation of early evidence rejection, proper and thorough analysis of all information of 'interest' will be ensured, occurrence of biases reduced and the reasoning process supported.
