Lab41/Dendrite

Lab41/Dendrite | Tactical Big Data and Cloud Computing | Scoop.it

It turns out that much of the world, both physical and virtual, can be represented as a graph. Graphs describe things that are linked together such as web pages and human societies. Like many other topics, Web technologies can make these types of powerful mathematical concepts more accessible to everyday users. Dendrite is a Lab41 exploration of ways to analyze, manipulate, version, and share extremely large graphs:

The Web frontend leverages AngularJS to provide a responsive data-driven experience.The UI interacts with a backend instance of the Titan Distributed Graph Database.The backend uses GraphLab, Faunus, and Jung for graph analytics.

luiy's curator insight, October 28, 2013 11:13 AM

Lockheed Martin is a security and aerospace company engaged in research for system design, development, manufacture and integration. The first large-scale big data visualization implemented from their Vizrt collaboration is MED-E, a dashboard specializing in Energy, designed to graphically illustrate layers of high-volume information about the status of energy resources, distribution and supply. For example, WindOptimizer is a MED-E suite of cloud-based services distributing real-time sensor data, including weather forecast prediction and wind energy supplies, so that wind farms, power companies and other energy companies can manage wind resources more cost-efficiently.  

 

Vizrt R&D teams in Europe and designers and support in the United States worked with Lockheed Martin to design a system that produces data visualization to a high standard but at the same time remains flexible in its application so that several different industries can use the product, customising it for their specific purposes.  

For Vizrt, developing the MED-E platform meant pushing Viz Artist and Viz Engine as a live data harvester and interactive visualization platform. Petter Ole Jakobsen, Vizrt’s CTO in Bergen, Norway said, “For MED-E, we’re taking multiple silos of data sources and coalescing them into one, scalable, big picture visualization representing all these different data layers. We are also doing this live when live data is available.”

Big Data for Defense and National Security: Maintaining the U.S. Technological Edge

Big Data for Defense and National Security: Maintaining the U.S. Technological Edge | Tactical Big Data and Cloud Computing | Scoop.it

With posting, tweeting, and streaming, the average American knowledge worker creates 1.8 million megabytes of data a year, enough to fill 9 CD-ROMS a day. But the big data revolution has just begun. There will be 44 times as much digital information in 2020 (35 ZB) as there was in 2009 (.8 ZB) according to IDC.
The national security community is a pioneer in the use of big data to achieve mission objectives but the analytics space is growing as quickly as the volume of digital data, itself. This session will focus on using big data analytics to maintain the U.S. technological edge and gaining advantage over adversaries. Join the discussion to learn: 

What is the future of big data analysis biometrics relating to defense and national security?
How do we translate the insights into operational relevance?
What can be done to mitigate the risks of false positives?
Can we balance data collection for the purpose of national security with privacy concerns?

Worldwide Threat Intelligence Security Services Spending to Exceed $1.4 Billion by 2018

A consistent bombardment of unknown, targeted, and adaptive cyber threats are wreaking havoc in the enterprise and driving the expansion of threat intelligence security services (TISS) that are specifically designed to detect advanced persistent threats (APTs), advanced malware, and previously unidentified attacks. According to new research from International Data Corporation ( IDC ), worldwide threat intelligence security services spending will increase from $905.5 million in 2014 to more than $1.4 billion in 2018.

“It Takes a Network”: The Rise and Fall of Social Network Analysi in U.S. Army Counterinsurgency Doctrine

During the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars, a group of warrior-thinkers developed a new U.S. Army counterinsurgency
(COIN) doctrine to fight modern “jihadist” insurgencies. Drawing heavily on social network analysis ideas, COIN
principles emphasized population protection and organizational learning and adaptation. As implemented in Iraq by
General David Petraeus, the doctrine greatly reduced intercommunal violence although other factors also contributed.
But, COIN in Afghanistan under General Stanley McChrystal was unsuccessful in ending the Taliban insurgency.
Although the Obama Administration substantially diminished the U.S. Army’s counterinsurgency capabilities, social
network analytic ideas persist in military policy and practices.

Social Media Analysis of the Syrian Conflict

Social Media Analysis of the Syrian Conflict | Tactical Big Data and Cloud Computing | Scoop.it

But the event most heavily covered by social media is the civil war in Syria, which has now raged for almost three year. The conflict has been extensively recorded on videos which are regularly uploaded to YouTube and then tweeted around the world. All sides in the conflict seem to be engaged with numerous social media accounts.

So an interesting question is to what extent does social media activity reflect the situation on the ground. That’s exactly the problem addressed today by Derek O’Callaghan at University College Dublin and a few pals. Their conclusion is that “social media activity in Syria is considerably more convoluted than reported in many other studies of online political activism that find a straightforward polarization effect.”
