Abstract
Architecture Technology Corporation (ATC) proposes the Decision Assistance, Visualization, and Intuitive Natural Control Interface (DAVINCI), a system that provides decision assistance through a multi-level topic-mapped knowledge base, abstract visualization of situational and metric data, and high-level abstract control of manually initiated and autonomic response protocols through a tangible user interface that utilizes physical control tokens in combination with multi-touch gestural input. In situations where information rapidly shifts context (such as during net-enabled spectrum warfare, or cyber security analytic operations), the metrics used to evaluate the situation are highly dynamic, to the point that existing technologies do not provide an optimum solution for presenting a visualization of the relevant metrics and situation evaluation data to the user. DAVINCI uses a topic-mapped knowledge base to process sensor inputs, determine the current situation, select only the metrics and response protocols relevant to that situation, and present that data to the user in a clear, concise manner. DAVINCI then allows the user to manage autonomic and manually-initiated response protocols using a tangible user interface wherein the user manipulates physical tokens in conjunction with multi-touch gestures on a touch-sensitive display and control device. These visualization and control capabilities can be customized and expanded via plug-in modules that implement the DAVINCI API. The DAVINCI solution is particularly suited to the cyberspace security and net-enabled spectrum warfare domains, but as a customizable software framework solution, DAVINCI can be applied to any problem domain where reduction of data unnecessary to the given situation and abstracted visualization and control capabilities are desired.
