Abstract
The proposed technology: GROK (Generating Reports On Knowledge) combines existing open source research tools to automatically generate reports from a dynamically changing set of documents. GROK presents the generated reports with a novel, uncluttered interface designed to save the analyst time in consuming the knowledge in the report, and finding the next piece of knowledge they need. The approach works by cataloging not only the knowledge it finds in the source documents, but how that knowledge was presented. In essence GROK augments the machine knowledge representation with a catalog of different approaches to express that knowledge. The expression catalog spans the whole corpus, allowing GROK to properly present domain specific vernacular. GROK also automatically builds up a flexible context which the analyst can intuitively manipulate to produce concise reports focused on only the information they need.
