Abstract:

On the DARPA XDATA program, Draper developed new approaches to understanding the usability and adoptability of data analytics applications. Draper developed the Software as a Sensor SensSoft capability, which turns analytics software applications themselves into measurement mediums for usability and adoptability. These measurements were used to develop and validate models of how users sequence and integrate features of software applications. Draper integrated SensSoft logging into applications developed by 6 other XDATA performers and used the newly developed metrics to provide comparative ranking and analysis to the XDATA program. To promote these advances in the broader community, Draper transitioned this technology to the Apache Software Foundation, and has planned follow-on efforts with DARPA, IARPA, and NGA efforts.
