Abstract
Current information retrieval methods provide an illusion of thorough data exploitation but in reality only consider a fraction of the data that is relevant to the Warfighter"s task. The fundamental reasons for this limitation are existing tools"inability to model the meaning of available data as well as their inability to understand the Warfighter"s true Information Requirements. Current information retrieval methods only retrieve what is specifically requested and provide no way to automatically bridge the gap between a Warfighter"s question and a data source"s index and content. The key innovation developed under this Phase II effort will seamlessly model all available information regardless of source (text, imagery, or video) using semantic processing to retrieve information based on the Warfighter"s Information Requirements. Through this CONtext Aware Representation of Knowledge (CON-ARK) effort the Warfighter is always guaranteed to have the right information at the right time. This is accomplished by building and exploiting a semantic model of unstructured data (text, imagery, and video) to automatically match it to the Warfighter"s needs. CON-ARK will have immediate operational impact as we have the ability to spiral functionality into DCGS, Army G2 LandISRNet, USAIC, and the FBI throughout the Phase II effort.
