Composite Networks: Understand, Predict, and Influence

The Network Science Collaborative Technology Alliance (NS CTA) is a collaborative research alliance between the US Army Research Laboratory (ARL), other government researchers, and a Consortium of four research centers: an Academic Research Center (ARC) focused on social/cognitive networks (the SCNARC), an ARC focused on information networks (the INARC), an ARC focused on communications networks (the CNARC), and an Interdisciplinary Research Center (the IRC) focused on interdisciplinary research and technology transition. The Alliance unites research across organizations, technical disciplines, and research areas to address the critical technical challenges of the Army and Network-Centric Warfare (NCW). Its purpose is to perform foundational cross-cutting research on network science, resulting in greatly enhanced human performance for network-enabled warfare and in greatly enhanced speed and precision for complex military operations.

James Hendler recognized for work in AI and government

James Hendler (Tetherless World Professor of Computer, Web, and Cognitive Sciences at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute) was named a Fellow of the National Academy of Public Administration, recognizing his expertise in artificial intelligence and government. Professor Hendler’s research with the NS-CTA has included extracting knowledge from semantically constructed information and social networks, and using semantic relationships to preserve quality of information.
