Past Projects


A Knowledge Entry System for Subject Matter Experts

The goal of SHAKEN project is to enable subject matter experts , without any assistance from AI technologists, to assemble the models of processes and mechanisms so that questions about them can be answered by declarative inference and simulation.



The objectives of the ENDSTATE initiative aim to provide new and innovative tools to aid in understanding and exploiting the vulnerabilities created by increasingly interconnected and interdependent physical network infrastructures. The vision was to bring together different but consistent model structures and analysis technologies so as to provide an insight into the vulnerabilities of the infrastructure. The insight could be used to derive the appropriate course of action, given desired effect


Genoa: The Structured Evidential Argumentation System

Under this effort, we developed the concept of structured argumentation applied to intelligence analysis, a corporate memory of structured arguments that accumulates over time constituting an historic record of anlytic thinking, and an asynchronous collaborative environemnt for collective reasoning.


HARP: Human Augmented Reasoning through Patterning

This project developed: 1) cognitive aids that allow humans and machines to "think together" in real-time about complicated problems; 2) techniques to overcome the biases and limitations of the human cognitive system; 3) "cognitive amplifiers" that help teams of people rapidly and fully comprehend complicated and uncertain situations; and, 4) the means to rapidly and seamlessly cut across and complement existing hierarchical organizational structures.


The Link Analysis Workbench

The goal of this project is to develop the Link Analysis Workbench (LAW), a Web-accessible tool where analysts and machines collaboratively perform link analysis by defining hierarchical and temporal patterns, that include uncertain and qualitative elements, and by defining search strategies for pattern application, through a graphical user interface that supports direct graphical browsing and editing of patterns, search strategies, and summaries and details of resulting matches.




Angler is a tool that helps intelligence/policy professionals explore, understand, and overcome cognitive biases, and collaboratively expand their joint cognitive vision through use of divergent & convergent thinking techniques (such as brainstorming and clustering).

LAW: Link Analysis Workbench

LAW: Link Analysis Workbench

LAW is a system that helps intelligence professionals define and match patterns within large, incomplete, and noisy sets of relational data.

SEAS: Structured Evidential Argumentation System

SEAS: Structured Evidential Argumentation System

SEAS is a tool to aid analysts in reasoning about potential opportunities/crises. It records analytic thinking in structured arguments, provides a collaborative environment in which multiple analysts can simultaneously contribute to arguments, and retains a coproate memory of the evolution of analytic thinking over time.
