Visualization Research Supports Military Missions

Dr. Christopher Healey, professor of computer science, and Dr. Robert St. Amant, associate professor of computer science, at NC State University, have been awarded $38,000 by Soar Technology, Inc. to support their research proposal entitled “Intuitive Information Fusion and Visualization.”

The award will run from August 12, 2013 to February 11, 2014. 
Abstract – This project has the overall objective of producing a novel intuitive decision making system to support a wide variety of military missions. The project has two components: assigning sentiment to social media, including representation of uncertainty, and connecting it to topic labels; and organizing information with respect to sense-making in the areas of noticing and bracketing.
