Abstract
Modus Operandi proposes the development of WISER (Wiki for Intelligent Semantic Event Reporting), an innovative semantic wiki framework for alerting warfighters of significant events and changing conditions relevant to their missions. Intelligence analysis of unstructured intelligence, particularly textual reports, is a very time-consuming process. The Marine Corps'S & T Strategic goal for intelligence is"to identify and develop a more responsive, comprehensive ability [] to collect and analyze data, develop useable intelligence products, and then quickly distribute relevant intelligence products to users across the battlefield."WISER addresses this capability gap by automatically extracting events and matching those event descriptions against a growing knowledge base. If the information is new and relevant, then it is integrated into the knowledge base. The changes are propagated as updates to the appropriate wiki pages. Then the events are compared against warfighter-defined topics, and alerts are sent to the warfighters that need to know about the new data. In Phase II, WISER will be extended to allow warfighters to define topics, receive alerts and browse the updated wiki pages from mobile devices. This capability will significantly reduce manual processing of intelligence and will push data directly to the tactical units that need Modus Operandi proposes the development of WISER (Wiki for Intelligent Semantic Event Reporting), an innovative semantic wiki framework for alerting warfighters of significant events and changing conditions relevant to their missions.
