Abstract
The Intelligence Community (IC) has applied significant effort towards creating automated adaptive workspaces. One success in this area originated with DARPA's Personalized Assistant that Learns (PAL), which focuses on improving the way that computers support humans through the use of cognitive systems that reason, learn from experience, and accept guidance in order to provide effective, personalized assistance. While PAL continues to achieve success in IC automation technologies, there are other avenues for future work which focus on a more bi-directional human-IT partnership. What analysts really need is an adaptive collaboration between the human and machine one in which the computer learns, adapts, and informs analysts based on their practices, situational context, and data content. This capability is analogous to how paralegals function as intelligent, dynamic, and indispensable partners for lawyers in the legal community. To provide this next generation capability, Securboration is teaming with SRI International and Intelligent Software Solutions (ISS) to develop the Adaptive Data Immersion ENvironment (ADIEN). Our approach for ADIEN leverages Securboration's expertise in machine learning and reasoning; SRI's leadership on the PAL program and adaptive, personalized intelligent assistance technologies; and ISS'subject matter expertise and leadership in developing and deploying operational intelligence systems to the IC.
