DECISIVE ANALYTICS’s James Nolan to Give Three Talks at 2018 Sea-Air-Space Expo

Next week, DECISIVE ANALYTICS Corporation’s Vice President of Analytic Technologies, Dr. James Nolan, will be giving three talks discussing DAC analytic technologies focusing on data fusion, relationship extraction, and entity disambiguation for analysts and warfighters at the 2018 Sea-Air-Space Exposition. Held on April 9th – 11th at the Gaylord National Convention Center at the National Harbor, Sea-Air-Space is the largest maritime exposition in the U.S. and serves to extend the Navy League’s mission of maritime policy education and sea service support.

RDF Entity and Association Disambiguation (READ) Enhancement

Dr. Nolan will be speaking on three different technologies developed by DECISIVE ANALYTICS as part of his talks starting at 4 pm on April 9th. The first technology, entitled RDF Entity and Association Disambiguation (READ) Enhancement, provides an entity and relationship co-reference resolutions capability that accurately collapses entity mentions in unstructured data sources and identifies and characterizes the relationships found while. By integrating statistical and semantic approaches, analysts will be able to easily navigate to the ‘who, what, and why’ more quickly than before. READ is targeted to military intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance programs and is particularly suited for the Distributed Common Ground System (DCGS).

Next, Dr. Nolan will go over Automated Concept Map Elicitation (ACME) which focuses on providing users with a rapid, visual mechanism for developing situational awareness around a specific intelligence requirement from multi-source data. ACME helps solve the technical challenge of fusing low-level information from multi-source data with surrounding context to provide analytical value.

In his final talk, Dr. Nolan will discuss Discovering Valued Information in a Cloud Environment (DVICE). This technology creates a framework to correlate, fuse, and exploit key analytic observations which have been extracted from distributed data sources to provide a consolidated and correlated knowledge product to the Warfighter. DVICE utilizes a cloud computing platform to identify threatening individuals and groups for these data stores via the created framework.
