Foundational technologies for activity-based intelligence—a review of the literature
MetadataShow full item record
Activity-based intelligence (ABI) is a discipline of intelligence where the analysis and subsequent collection are focused on the activity and transactions associated with an entity, a population or an area of interest. It is considered a new intelligence tradecraft. This report offers a survey of algorithmic-level literature that has been directly applied to ABI analysis. Areas considered include, ABI- and tactical intelligence-specific approaches, approaches for assessing stages of political unrest and societal radicalization and approaches explored in the field of ambient intelligence. Finally, recommendations of scientific techniques that have potential utility for ABI are offered.
