AbstractThe essence of the problem is to allow military intelligence and operations staff to pose"tell me about"questions concerning an entity, and obtain a finished information product. There are 4 main technical challenges / sub-problems: a) Question content modeling: The question needs to be semantically mapped to an ontology. b)Semantic enrichment of unstructured text: Unstructured data (text, images etc.) needs to be marked-up with semantic tags that relate the content to the ontology. c)Sufficiency tracking of discovered content: Relevant content needs to be discovered and its sufficiency evaluated as an adequate response to the question. d)Presentation of finished product: The answer needs to be presented as a report in a familiar format such as MS Office or Adobe PDF. We present a cloud-based approach to address all these issues.
