As we recently discussed at the 23rd International Conference on Information Visualisation, one challenge with visualizing unstructured sources like news and social media is getting the right data. To remedy these problems, we created a subsystem to help domain experts who lack data science knowledge so they can easily build better classifiers once and only occasionally maintain them.
TellFinder “slaloms through terabytes of the deep web to search where Google can’t” and helps analysts identify an international sex trafficking network, leading to more than a dozen FBI-led sting operations targeting U.S.-based criminal organizations.
Intelligence analysts, criminal investigators and legal practitioners frequently face complex cases with large volumes of ambiguous, uncertain, contradictory or inconclusive evidence. They must rapidly analyze the evidence, assess the situation and recommend options with clear justification to decision makers. Moreover, inherent human cognitive biases, such as neglect of probability, confirmation bias and recency bias further complicate objective analysis.
Uncharted congratulates DARPA on its recent 60th anniversary. For nearly 20 years, we have worked with leading minds on “DARPA-hard” technology challenges. This immense privilege has afforded us the opportunity to apply thought, design, and implementation leadership in the data-driven art and science of visual analytics to new breakthroughs in human empowerment.
