Abstract

The Socio-Cultural Analysis Tool (S-CAT) is being developed to help decision makers better understand the plausible effects of actions taken in situations where the impact of culture is both significant and subtle. We describe S-CAT in the context of a hypothetical influence operation that serves as an illustrative use case. One of the many challenges in developing S-CAT involves providing transparency into the model. S-CAT does this by providing explanations of the analysis it provides. This paper describes how S-CAT can improve option-awareness during influence operations and discusses the explanation capabilities used by S-CAT to support transparency into the model.

PRIME: A Predictive Model Development Environment

The goal was to develop PRIME, an effects-based modelling tool, as a web application. PRIME supports rapid, collaborative development of forecasts of the effects of a planned set of DIME (diplomatic, informational, military, or economic) actions.
