Abstract
Modus Operandi proposes the development of reusable technologies called Affinity. Affinity identifies relationships and associations among people, objects and locations that have automatically been extracted from large volumes of both structured and unstructured data. Our innovative approach combines a mathematical information indexing and retrieval algorithm, called Latent Semantic Indexing (LSI), with Natural Language Processing (NLP) techniques and a weighted feature-based algorithm to find relevant information, construct superior social network graphs and present a more understandable analysis than contemporary approaches. This capability will address key technology gaps in the Distributed Common Ground System (DCGS) family of systems for deriving social networks from all-source intelligence.
