13:43 GMT, May 4, 2012 Program to assist warfighters with planning and decision-making by inferring implicit information in text, filtering redundancy and connecting like documents Making sense of large amounts of data is a challenge for military operations officers and intelligence analysts whose window for processing that data is often small. In reviewing captured documents, intelligence reports, news articles and related information, conservative estimates indicate that these personnel are unable to explore as much as 90% of the information available to them due to mission, time and resource constraints. Automated, deep natural-language understanding technology may hold a solution for more efficiently processing text information. If successful, DEFT will allow analysts to move from limited, linear processing of insurmountable quantities of data to a nuanced, strategic exploration of available information.
