The Arlington Institute (TAI)
has developed DIANE (Digital Analysis Environment), an information
collection and analysis system, that enables sophisticated information
acquisition, event monitoring, knowledge extraction, and communication
of the knowledge through a secured, rich interactive web environment.
This system facilitates the Institute’s overall mission
of understanding potential global futures and trying to influence
large-scale, rapid, positive change.
DIANE is both a synergistic collection of tools that empower the
analytical process in extraordinary new ways, and an engine for
exposing knowledge that is locked in large amounts of highly dynamic
information. DIANE’s unique combination of individual components
is orchestrated through its Integration Engine. This engine allows
the deep, seamless interaction of human sense-making processes
with powerful computer analytical capabilities to identify new
patterns and relationships in unstructured information. Together,
the collection of tools and engine, help analysts FIND information,
PICTURE the relationships, REALIZE the situation, FORESEE the
outcomes, and MODEL the possibilities.
This innovative information and knowledge planning system enables
organizations enterprise-wide to anticipate futures rather then
respond to events. The unique properties of DIANE provide breakthrough
capabilities, including the following:
here for Diagram
- Search, monitor, and linguistically
process large amounts of structured and unstructured information.
- Provide enterprise-wide knowledge
discovery through sophisticated analytical processes and system
and user interaction management.
- Provide a diverse array of
advanced information visualization aids.
- Assess the significance of
events extracted from data sets as they are captured at the
earliest point of “consumability.”
- Transform analytical processes
throughout the enterprise from reactive analysis to anticipatory
analysis, therefore reducing surprises.
- Facilitate organization-wide
analytical collaboration via advanced process-driven, secure,
- Seamlessly output intelligence
product through Microsoft Office, i2’s Analyst Notebook
and other commonly used analytical and presentation tools.
