Analysis focuses on maximizing insights from the massive, disparate, unreliable and dynamic data that areor could beavailable to analysts, in a timely manner. We are pursuing new sources of information from existing and novel data, and we are investigating innovative techniques that can be utilized in the processes of analysis. Our programs are in diverse technical disciplines but have common features:

  • Involve potential transition partners at all stages, beginning with the definition of success;
  • Create technologies that can earn the trust of the analyst
    user by providing the reasoning for results;
  • Address uncertainty and data provenance explicitly.
