Abstract:

This paper explores the use and development of knowledge discovery and information extraction tools. It can be concluded that these tools can provide a valuable analysis capability and insight for finding patterns of information that do not necessarily fit into the norm of patterns within that data. This allows an analyst more time to perform intelligence analysis on highly relevant information while spending less time on information retrieval. Information extraction tools make it easier for intelligence analysts to find, extract, visualize, and otherwise exploit data of interest from unformatted sources of text of multiple types. Though there are limitations associated with this technology, its benefit to the Air Force and analysts at all levels will be vital to our intelligence gathering capabilities far into the future.
