Abstract:

The Integrated Cognitive-neuroscience Architectures for Understanding Sensemaking ICArUS Program aimed to build computational cognitive-neuroscience models to explain, predict, and emulate the process of human sensemaking the process of generating hypotheses to explain data that is sparse, noisy, and uncertain. Phase 2 lasted from January, 2013 to June, 2014. In Phase 2, the program employed a challenge problem, based on geospatial data, to compare the models performance to human performance. Here, the term geospatial data includes multiple types of intelligence data, any of which may be represented in a georeferenced framework for instance, a layer within a GIS-like display. The challenge problem required that participants and models make sense of temporal patterns in geospatial data. This document s primary purpose is to specify the format of the ICArUS Phase 2 Challenge Problem TACTICS. It was written for software developers, contains development code, and is not meant to stand alone. The document, ICArUS Overview of Test and Evaluation TE Materials, available at httpwww.mitre.orgpublications, provides a broad overview of MITRE s TE effort, including a list of all TE documents and materials produced in Phase 2.
