The increase in the amount of data available has led to a need to access it easily. Raw data often does not meet the end user’s needs and must first be processed and organized to gain meaningful knowledge. There is a need for both technical and non-technical people to access data quickly. Democratizing data allows all users to have access to the data by preventing data silos. This process streamlines data access and enables users to access data, enhance their knowledge, and make timely decisions. WTI is currently partnered with the Department of Defense to assist with research, tools, and knowledge models to allow democratized data to become a reality within the intelligence community.
For many organizations, intelligence data and production are stuck in document-based products and organizational silos. Document-based intelligence products are created, and consumers of the data must visit multiple databases to gather all the information they require. Although intelligence is primarily in human-readable formats, mission constraints and large volumes of data impede human analysts’ ability to read and synthesize disparate data promptly to optimize operational decisions. WTI aims to address some of the significant operational challenges and constraints of overwhelming data within the intelligence community. WTI has done this through a Platform as a Service (PaaS) solution, allowing for access to information by utilizing knowledge modeling that can be integrated into various domains.
WTI’s democratized data solutions enable data to transition to machine-readable formats by building correlations between objects and activities of interest. This allows decision-makers at all levels to have access to current intelligence. The democratized data will deliver analysts current real-time and accurate information to formulate decisions. This system utilizes object-based production (OBP) and can easily integrate with activity-based intelligence (ABI) to serve the future of intelligence. The core of the democratized data process is the analysis and adherence to the leading edge and published standards, including W3C, RDF, OWL, basic formal ontology (BFO), common core ontology (CCO), and integration with the defense intelligence common ontology (DICO).
Utilizing data from the battlefield through the Advanced Battle Management System (ABMS) and sensors across the DoD will allow for knowledge to be gleaned by analysts in ways that will enhance predictive analysis. This democratizing of data will allow for coordination and collaboration across a spectrum of domains and enable the Joint All-Domain Command and Control (JADC2) to successfully utilize data across numerous platforms.
WTI is committed to the vision of our customers and is incorporating leading-edge technologies to democratize data. Our solutions deliver machine-readable intelligence and the democratized data that will be available to all intelligence warfighters. WTI, partnered with DoD, is establishing a foundation to advance the future using artificial intelligence, machine learning, and advanced analytics.
