Phase 2 STTR

Institution: George Mason University

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA11-T003
Budget: 07/10/13 - 07/14/15

We will develop automatic ontology-aligning software, leveraging the enormous existing Cyc AI system to drive the formulation and ranking (pro/con argumentation) of hypotheses about term-term relationships, especially where the relationship is not simple 1-to-1 correspondence. Multiple Cyc micro-theories (contexts) will be created, to hold inco...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: George Mason University

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA11-T003
Budget: 04/20/12 - 10/19/12

The process of an MDA stakeholder specifying a needed modeling and simulation system has many problems: they may be ambiguous, overly specific, overly general, contradictory, etc. Symbolic knowledge-based representation and reasoning systems have matured to the point where they can ameliorate this. E.g., an extension of Cyc® can help a Marines...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-077
Budget: 05/16/07 - 05/14/09

The US Air Force 45th Space Wing is a prime example of a multi-faceted organization responsible for rapidly making complex and critical decisions on a regular basis. Despite substantial documentation and training, decision-makers sometimes lack timely access to some key information. Furthermore, they sometimes lack the knowledge of how and wher...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-077
Budget: 04/12/06 - 04/12/07

In any complex environment such as managing a battlespace, launching a satellite, or operating a global enterprise critical decisions depend on a broad range of information sources, decision-making guidelines, and an array of operational and environmental factors. These challenges highlight the need for decision support systems whose decisi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-073
Budget: 04/11/06 - 04/11/07

Analytical tasks at the all-source level, and above, generally require access to intelligence distributed among a variety of forms: structured databases with differing schemas, electronic maps with various metadata schemes, and textual reports in multiple languages. Knowledge bases that employ highly expressive formal languages, such as extensio...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD03-030
Budget: 02/02/04 - 08/02/05

Current document search techniques are inadequate to handle queries whose answer requires establishing links among a number of (potentially obscure) facts. We propose to remedy this situation with a prototype system that applies statistical and knowledge-based methods to the problem of identifying chains of connections between terms and entities...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A03-094
Budget: 12/09/03 - 06/08/04

Traditional methods for constructing knowledge-intensive systems have relied heavily on intervention from artificial intelligence specialists. The first step in this intervention is typically either: extensive human-directed interviews of subject-matter experts so that the knowledge can then be laboriously hand-encoded; or the training of SMEs ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF01-106
Budget: 02/25/02 - 02/25/04

We propose to develop a knowledge based application for information fusion and data monitoring. The Cyc Monitor will provide the end user with the capability to seamlessly integrate multiple, semantically hetergenous data bases and knowledge sources within the Cyc knowledge base, define high-level patterns, or concepts of interest, which may app...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF01-106
Budget: 04/19/01 - 01/19/02

Our objective is to determine the feasibility of, and optimal design for, the incorporation of a large body of formalized common sense knowledge into an information integration, filtering, and dissemination tool, in support of a multi-force coalition. With this substrate of knowledge, it is possible to identify relationships between data points...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF01-078
Budget: 04/19/01 - 01/19/02

Investigate how to improve not just the precision and accuracy of network configuration tools but also how to qualitatively expand the scope of what sorts of conditions of interest they report, by incorporating a large commonsense knowledge base to enable reasoning about network functionality. Current tools are limited by their inability to con...
