Interoperable Knowledge Representation for Intelligence
The objective of this effort is to organize, conduct, and report on the
results of an information technology workshop to be conducted on behalf
of the Northeast Regional Research Center (NRRC), an activity of the
Advanced Research and Development Activity (ARDA) in Information Technology.
This project addresses the following challenge problems:
(1) How to enable interoperability of knowledge representation (KR)
technology developed by multiple organizations in multiple ARDA programs
and designed to perform different tasks.
(2) How to practically
represent knowledge that is relevant to intelligence analysis tasks in a
form that enhances automated support for analysts.
The focus is on
hypothetical scenarios and alternative contexts, and the results will
include designs of representations, automated reasoning methods for
knowledge expressed in the representations, prototype implementations
of the designs and methods, and use case demonstrations.
The specific work that Grüninger performed in this project was to demonstrate
interoperability between the Process Specification Language (PSL)
and the subtheory of process concepts within the Cyc Upper Ontology.
