Abstract
To provide aide to the ever increasing occurrences of international crises the U.S. Navy needs situational awareness and intelligence to know how and where to respond. New ubiquitous cell phone and smartphone coverage around the world combined with existing internet sites, apps and social media provide real-time human intelligence of rapidly evolving crises. This data is not structured, trusted, validated or verified; and the analysis and fusion of the data is time consuming and involves many human-in-the-loop systems. The Navy needs actionable intelligence to respond to these crises. SCORE (Social Network Data Convergence into Reliable Information for Emergencies) is a modular system meant to converge multiple unstructured social networking data streams into reliable, verified and useful information and intelligence to be used to help the Navy manage and provide aid to crisis locations around the world. SCORE will gather data from many sources (Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, etc.) then using agents will perform analysis and merging techniques on the data to filter out the noise, then merge data from common events into summarized intelligence reports that can be integrated into a collaborative management system or mapped to see larger situational picture.
