The THINK (Tactical Human Integration of Network Knowledge) project is a collaborative effort of Pearson's Knowledge Technologies (PKT) division, Carnegie Mellon University's Center for the Computational Analysis of Social and Organizational Systems (CASOS) and the MA&D Operation of Alion Science and Technology. The goal of the effort is to develop an integrated toolset that supports different but complementary analysis methods. The toolset addresses three inter-related aspects of human integration of networked knowledge: CMU's tools for extracting and analyzing dynamic network structure; PKT's tool for understanding and assessing the content of communication over a given network; and Alion's tool for modeling and exploring network performance for given team structures, technologies and human cognitive behaviors. The work focuses, in part, on enhancing the existing tools by supporting interoperability at the data level so that each component tool can leverage the analyses and predictions provided by the other tools.
