1 Technosocial Predictive Analytics Creating decision advantage through the integration of human and physical models Antonio Sanfilippo

2 Overview Motivations, needs and requirements General approach and challenges Responding to challenges Conclusions The work presented has been developed within the context of the Technosocial Predictive Analytic Initiative, a 4-year research program at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory 2

3 Why Predictive Analytics and why now? Factors such as globalization and the ever-growing rate of knowledge sharing keep escalating the asymmetric nature of threat vectors Strategic surprises emerging from non-linear relationships between trigger and target events present harder challenges in managing risk Analysts and policymakers increasingly ask for anticipatory techniques to aid decision making Use Predictive Analytics descriptors such as What-if Scenarios and Possible Futures to help counter adversities and maximize opportunities 3

4 Why do we need computers to perform anticipatory reasoning? The human brain provides a unique framework for memory and prediction The ability to focus in the moment and take quick decisions by insight and intuition make human judgment uniquely effective However, human judgment can lead to fallacious reasoning when biased Lack of knowledge/expertise (Klein 1998) Groupthink (Janis 1972) Positive framing, trust in extreme judgments, neglect of uncorrelated observables (Tversky & Kahneman 1973, 1981) Memory and focus attention limitations (Miller 1956, Heuer 1999) 4

5 Bridge the gap between human and computer intelligence to enhance human judgment Help analysts and policymakers to make better decisions Provide multidisciplinary knowledge reachback to inform analysis and response during decision making Supplement the expertise of the analyst and policymaker with simulated scenarios generated by integrated computational models Stimulates creative critical reasoning through visual analysis and collaborative/competitive work 5

6 R&D areas and capabilities Knowledge inputs Support the modeling task by facilitating the acquisition and vetting of expert knowledge and evidence Technosocial modeling Develop new methods for integrating human and physical models Cognitive enhancement Leverage analytical gaming to stimulate creative thinking 6

7 Challenges Model design & calibration Knowledge coalescence Elicitation and integration of subject matter expertise Elicitation and brokerage of experts judgments Model interoperability Link across diverse models Model Instantiation Use marshaled evidence to apply models to specific problems Analytical integration Work with interoperable models to support analysis and decision-making within a collaborative environment 7

25 Analytical integration

26 Analytical integration Integrate models within a gaming environment to enable analysts and policy-makers to stress-test the quality of their analyses and plans through role-play Players take on competing or collaborating roles, according to their goals Each role is matched with resources and activities which link to model parameters When an activity is performed, the model changes state and the resources available to players may change 26

27 A sample game: Improvised Explosive Devices Players take on competing roles Blue team: prevent IED attacks Red team: carry out attacks Resource management flow Players allocate resources across predefined activities Model determines how activities increase/decrease the likelihood of success for red/blue team activities 27

28 Integrating computer models in analytical gaming System Dynamics The notions of stocks and flows map directly to environmental parameters that change over time SD engines such as STELLA offer interfaces for manipulating input parameters and tracking model change over time Bayesian Nets Players actions modify prior probabilities on event model nodes New probabilities are propagated in the model Evidence nodes are used to broadcast messages to players Model changes are conveyed to players in terms of Ensuing changes to their resources and the game outcome Messages which describe specific events (from evidence nodes) 28
