LAS Research Symposium

LAS hosted its 2016 Annual Research Symposium on December 5, 2016. This event showcased LAS’s work aligned to three major themes:  Sense-making; Behavioral Analysis, and User Experience highlighting more than 80 research projects and demonstrations related to the field of analytic sciences. 

Links to each project poster is listed alphabetically and by major theme.  Videos on plenary and panel discussions are also posted.  These include the keynote address by Senator Richard Burr (R-NC), the LAS overview, presentations on Design Thinking through Design and Let the Analyst be the Analyst and two panel discussions.

LAS brings together forward-looking academics, and established industry, small business and start-up partners to collaborate hand-in-hand with the Intelligence Community and the Department of Defense mission partners, analysts, and researchers.  Together, these teams envision, research and create common analytic tools, tradecraft, and methodologies that further the art and science of analysis.

The Symposium was open to government employees, academics and industry partners with an interest in learning more about the Lab’s work in analytic tradecraft and big data analytics.

LAS aims to bring together a multi-disciplinary group of academic, industry, and government researchers, analysts and managers together to re-engineer the intelligence analysis process to promote predictive analysis. LAS will do this by conducting both classified and unclassified research in a variety of areas of research. The research done in this area will serve as the foundation for mission effects and integrated back into the enterprise.
