Abstract:

The University of Massachusetts developed three technologies under the Active Templates program. The first was Capture the Flag, a wargaming environment that includes a simulator of battalion-and-higher level land warfare. Capture the Flag was initiated by the Active Templates program manager LTC Doug Dyer, but funded primarily by other programs, so it is not reported in any detail here. The second project involved training rats to carry audiovisual backpacks under computer and human control for surveillance and search and rescue missions. The third effort concerned an hypothesis of LTC Dyers that the semantics of the kinds one sees in the Active Templates program could be developed bottom up by the people who use them, rather than top down by trained ontologists.
