Our project is aimed at integrating and extending inferential, analogical, and intelligent IR technologies to create power tools for intelligence analysts. Our goal is to discover interesting and powerful functional integrations that permit these technologies to exploit each others' strengths to mitigate their weaknesses. From the perspective of knowledge-based AI technology, a key goal of the project is to extend the reach of such systems into the world of unstructured data and text. From the perspective of IR technology, it is to leverage the application of inferential and analogical techniques to structured representations in order to achieve significant new functionality.
