New Event Detection

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB012-015
Budget: 11/21/01 - 09/25/02
PI: Dr. Karen Lochbaum

Intelligence organizations want to know when an unprecedented event or new information is reported. While there is good technology for searching, tracking, and filtering on known topics, current methods do poorly at detecting something new. The chief mechanism of search and topic tracking, spotting important words, is innapropriate-new stories...

Command Performance: New Technology for Assessing Direct Leadership Abilities

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Yale University

Agency: Army
Topic: ARMY01-T008
Budget: 09/30/01 - 03/30/02
PI: Dr. Lynn Streeter

In the future, relatively junior leaders will face broader responsibilities. To predict and guide more rapid development of command leadership ability, it is necessary to know what personal attributes and experiences mold it. We will construct a novel battery of accurate, objective direct-leadership assessments to predict performance in real wor...

Dynamic SuperManuals with Latent Semantic Analysis

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N00-088
Budget: 06/06/01 - 06/30/03
PI: Dr. Thomas Landauer

This Phase II effort will research, develop, and evaluate a prototype SuperManual, a personally adaptive electronic maintenance manual (IETM) that is automatically constructed from ordinary manuals. It will accomplish this by combining and advancing two state-of-art technologies for adaptive text search and presentation. (1) Latent Semantic Anal...

Digital Resources for Instructional Design in CBT Authoring Using Latent Semantic Analysis

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD00-C04
Budget: 04/03/01 - 10/03/01
PI: Dr. Darrell Laham

The Advanced Distributed Learning infrastructure will greatly expand the opportunity to use computer based training (CBT). Comparable opportunities are rapidly increasing in corporate training, institutional education, and individual life-long learning.However, the development of a high quality CBT requires both subject matter and instructional ...

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD00-C02
Budget: 12/15/00 - 06/15/00
PI: Dr. Darrell Laham

The Army Research Institute (ARI) is testing a concept for teaching cognitive readiness skills of combat command reasoning. The basis is research showing that expert thinking skills are acquired only by very long and deliberate practice. ARI's computer application "Think Like a Commander", presents tactical scenarios to learners and requires the...

Latent Semantic Analysis-based tutorial and assessment tools for ADL

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A00-010
Budget: 12/15/00 - 10/14/01
PI: Dr. Thomas Landauer

In today's rapidly changing global operations environments, teams often must be assembled and individuals re-trained quickly for new force requirements, new systems, and changing missions. The goal of this research is to produce innovative computer software for individual assessment and team selection, for adaptive learning, and for cognitive pe...
