Angler: Collaboratively Expanding your Cognitive Horizon

by Andres Rodriguez, Thomas Boyce, John Lowrance, Eric Yeh

in International Conference on Intelligence Analysis

2005.

Abstract

Angler is a tool to help analysts explore, under-stand, and overcome biases that result from pre-vious experiences and background, and to col-laborate in expanding their joint cognitive vi-sion. Angler utilizes divergent and convergent techniques, such as brainstorming and clustering or voting, to guide a diverse set of intelligence professionals in completing a complex knowl-edge task. The tool helps the group through the process of forming consensus, while preserving and quantifying differing ways of thinking. An-gler provides a Web-based collaborative envi-ronment that allows users distributed by both time and geography to assemble in teams, with the help of a facilitator.

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.
