Annapolis, MD) Orbis Technologies, Inc. is proud to announce its selection as a presenting organization for the first Army Science & Technology Symposium and Showcase, taking place next week. The event will run from August 21-23 and will take place at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC. Dr. Kojo Linder, Orbis’ Chief Scientist, will demonstrate “Multimedia Topic Modeling for Threat Actor Identification.” Dr. Linder will discuss how machine learning can be exploited to prioritize multimedia artifacts (videos, images) found on social media for identifying threat actors.
The current process of identifying relevant threat actors in online multimedia artifacts is limited to keyword searches and evaluating metadata tags, both of which result in large processing times and an abundance of artifacts with little relevance. To overcome these challenges, Orbis implements clustering models to group relevant artifacts based on text associated with the artifacts (chatroom blogs, tweets).
The National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) is sponsoring the Symposium and will feature the latest technologies, tools, and research developments that will strengthen and sustain the warfighter. The theme of the 2018 Army Science and Technology Symposium and Showcase is: Empowering a Soldier’s Success
