MIO Cortex: Memory Mechanisms for Operator-Expert Networked Decision Support
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper we consider the phenomenon and functionality of a memory system capable of supporting collective expert networks. In this instance, we apply the context of networked decision support to a maritime interdiction operation (MIO). There are two dimensions of knowledge in such networked decision support systems (NWDSS): social or organizational memory as exemplified by reach back to subject matter experts, and software encoded knowledge bases distributed across a MIO services network. We consider a transactive memory system (TMS) as a mechanism unifying network knowledge flow, formation and sharing. In the context of MIO, the TMS is considered as a knowledge network that forms and evolves through the process of discovery and formation of strong and wek ties between the information sensors and expert nodes producing shared analyses. WE examine the nature of bursts and clustering in social networking between mobile operators and reachback expeters, and describe the potential architecture of a human-machine "cortex" ysing a MIO-related social network.
