27 April 2018 Data fusion for sociocultural place understanding using deep learning
Author Affiliations +
To be effective in complex operations, the U.S. military requires understanding about populations in the physical and information environments. Operations executed without sufficient understanding lead to unintended consequences with potentially far-reaching implications. We present Apropos, a platform that aims to improve mission outcomes through socioculturally informed course of action analyses. Apropos uses deep learning over multiple data modalities to efficiently derive information on operational and civil factors. Research efforts focus on deep learning approaches and model fusion techniques centered around knowledge graph embeddings enabling semantic search, predictive surfaces, and other analytics (e.g. route planning and site selection).
