Abstract : The ABI project is designed to encompass the development and use of advanced computer-based life and social science methodologies and technologies to: describe, explain, and predict planned courses of action (intentions) and perceptions of foreign decision-makers; integrate this and other intelligence information in a comprehensive automated system; and develop appropriate other uses for techniques involved. The research design describe the concepts involved in the ABI project; provides for research controls; discusses means of acquiring relevant behavioral information; describes the ABI interface with human expertise; lists special applications; and provides a prioritized, scheduled list of research tasks.
