Supporting the Pattern Development Cycle in Intelligence Gathering

Abstract

To deal with noisy and incomplete data sets, analysts need tools that support an intelligence gathering cycle. In this cycle, the analyst (1) creates an initial pattern corresponding to his information need, (2) retrieves a collection of matching episodes in the data, (3) revises the pattern based on the shortcomings of the matches, and (4) repeats the process until the revised pattern is returning the right data. This paper discusses the cycle through a use case of the Link Analysis Workbench (LAW), a tool for discovering and analyzing situations of interest in large relational data sets.

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.
