Leveraging Semantics for Intelligence Gathering Applications
Using a knowledge model as a basis for intelligence gathering applications allows you to bring data, context and meaning together into a single domain that can be understood by human operators and queried programmatically.
Let’s look at Colonel Boyd’s OODA theory as a model for processing a Request for Intelligence (RFI). In this example, we’ll only use the first three phases: OBSERVE – obtain all the relevant data points; ORIENTATE – determine the relationships between data points and identify the most significant for decision-making; DECIDE - develop possible plans for resolving the challenges presented by the significant relationships and data points.
Semantics and knowledge models are key to this process, as it is only possible to determine the significance of a data point once its meaning is expressed in terms of the decision to be taken.
There are four types of knowledge models that can be used in the intelligence-gathering process.
The definitions in the Master Ontology provide the framework for understanding and can be used by all actors; human analysts, applications, or cognitive techniques in the intelligence-gathering process.
Semaphore’s capabilities provide value as part of an overall solution that supports investigations or intelligence gathering:
Jeremy Bentley - COE and Founder
Transit authority provides a rich and robust user experience with Semantic AI
Driverless cars on city streets, commercial drones delivering packages, and computer-captained ships navigating the high seas – revolutionary changes that promise improvements in mobility, safety, efficiency, and convenience, but do not guarantee them.
The transportation sector is faced with multiple challenges. How the future unfolds depends on which technologies and services consumers and businesses embrace and how policymakers respond.
Transportation authorities must:
The answers to these and other questions are critically important as transportation plays a central role in society and the economy but is frequently taken for granted. To learn how one major metropolitan transit authority leveraged the Semantic AI capabilities of Semaphore to provide targeted and contextualized user search results, download our complimentary case study.
