Intelligent Information Dissemination Server (IIDS)
Project Award Date: 0000-00-00
Information needed by the warfighter is available from many different sources and in many different formats: unstructrued and semi-structured test (e.g., news wires, intelligence reports, etc.), structured data in dataqbase systems (e.g., logistics and inventory databases), and image and video data (e.g., weather maps from satellites, area maps and battlefield snapshots form UAVs or fly-bys, etc.) All this information needs to be integrated into a comprehensive scenario called the "Battle field Infosphere."
Our work supports the generation of this infosphere by providing intelligent dissemination of information to the warfighters. KU is working as a member of a consortium of Universities and companies, namely Global InfoTek, ISX, Lockheed-Martin, and Stanford University, that is designing and implementing IIDS.
The project involves research in AI, multiagent systems, adaptive and learning agents, CORBA, and heterogeneous databases.
