Abstract
Fighting the ‘Long War’ requires a long memory as well as the ability to recognize and adapt to constant, rapid change. In accumulating knowledge about the Global War on Terror, the intelligence community seeks to keep track of potential or known terrorists, their organizations, their targets, and their tactics. Crucial nuggets of information are often embedded within free text reported by numerous disparate sources. Whether consumed by an analyst or by a warfighter, each new report forces its reader to determine: Does this just confirm what we already know, or has something significant changed? Modus Operandi proposes WISER to identify those significant changes and notify interested subscribers. WISER will extend MO’s Wave Exploitation Framework (Wave-EF) product with innovative algorithms to detect significant changes in the knowledge base. WISER will automatically populate a semantic wiki from incoming disparate intelligence sources using MO’s innovative semantic event extraction and enrichment techniques, and our innovative aggregation approach to correlating related triples.
