Making Sense : Challenges
The key challenge that this proposal addresses is the analysis and visualization of multiple sources of multi-modal data that may be partial, unreliable and contradictory.
In addressing this challenge we expect to create an interactive visualization-based decision support assistant which collects data, fuses it, analyses it and visualizes the results in a way which can be shared by analysts. Each aspect of the assistant poses significant new scientific challenges.
New developments in computer forensics, automatic gisting, data management and resource allocation.
- Fusion and inference
Integration of data of variable sources, locating missing data, resolution of contradictions.
Summarizing fused data, machine learning to identify relevant connections in the data.
From multiple perspectives both shared and operational;
Informed by the operational model(s) of data analysis, risk assessment and legal considerations.
