Cindy Daniell, director of research at the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency,Â told C4ISRNET in an interview published TuesdayÂ thatÂ artificial intelligence could help NGA analysts address the ânothing significant to reportâ issue in image triage.
âWe are looking to AI to filter that, to perform video triage for us and tell us where thereâs something significant and meanwhile they can just cull out all of the NSTRs,â Daniell said. âWeâre looking to AI to perform those mundane processes and to help us allow the analysts then to focus on the real problems of complexity. The problems that take spatial analysis, that take correlating patterns of activity together and take more of a strategic reasoning; the AI can process out all of these simple robotics.â
She noted that NGA is intent to addressÂ other challenges including source strategies, image understanding beyond automatic target recognition and automated feature extraction.
