Air Force Awards Contract to Securboration to Enhance Analyst Capabilities

Securboration has been selected by the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) to explore, systematically study and develop technology that enables computers to proactively support analyst activity. The goal is to provide a bidirectional human and information technology partnership where the computer learns, adapts and informs analysts based on their typical practices, situational context, and available data content. The system under development, referred to as the Adaptive Data Immersion Environment or ADIEN, combines machine learning, text analytics, and semantic search to learn and evolve user preferences based on individual usage patterns. Additionally, as new data products become available they will be automatically identified and seamlessly added into analyst’s workspace. ADIEN  is designed to act as a ‘buddy agent’ that not only stays one step ahead of the analyst but does so in an intelligent fashion.  In this capacity, ADIEN provides intelligent offloading to proactively provide assistance to the analyst while they are focused on another task; data immersion to provide the analyst with a wide view of the data landscape allowing them to navigate, test and evaluate hypothesis; continuity in order to maintain the analysis state, allowing analysts to take necessary breaks and seamlessly continue where they left off; and allows for collaboration across analyst networks. ADIEN combines machine learning, text analytics, and semantic search to not only learn and evolve preferences based on individual usage patterns, but also to identify related data relevant to what the analyst is working on and to proactively and seamlessly insert them into the analyst’s workspace. ADIEN’s capabilities include (1) letting the data speak for itself by guiding analysts to where the data convolves, but also highlighting ‘outliers’ of interest to the analyst; (2) continually adapting to and augmenting analyst’s workflow; (3) accommodating the analyst’s interrupt-driven environment and (4) subtly facilitating collaboration without mandating it.
