ARLINGTON, Va., Feb. 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- DECISIVE ANALYTICS Corporation announces that it will be presenting and demonstrating their capabilities at the Human, Social, Cultural and Behavior (HSCB) Conference.  The event will take place February 8-10, 2011 at the Westfield's Marriott hotel in Chantilly, Virginia.

HSCB modeling focuses on integrating social behavior at the micro level such as tribes, militias, terrorist cells, etc. to the macro level including nations, religions, large groups etc. using social science theory and analytic methods for operational use.  It is used to help understand the framework, relationships, behaviors and trends associated with the collection of individuals.

The purpose of the conference is to showcase research and applications in the general HSCB modeling area and engage the OSD HSCB modeling program personnel as well as leading scientific and technical experts in a technical exchange.  During this exchange, DECISIVE ANALYTICS will be demonstrating proprietary products, CONTOUR™, Semantic Drill™, and PANTHER™.  

  • CONTOUR ( is an enterprise web-based portal that enables analysts to collect, search, and analyze vast amounts of raw intelligence and open source data.   Contour creates actionable intelligence by automatically discovering topics and relationships in your data, enabling deep insight into the socio-dynamics for a region of interest.
  • The Semantic Drill eliminates the process of manually tagging your data by automatically identifying rich social network structures from unstructured data.  This capability moves beyond simple entity extraction and instead recovers full semantic structure through state-of-the-art linguistic processing.
  • PANTHER automatically finds entities of interest and the predictors of behavior based on Human, Social, and Cultural attributes.  Instead of manually trying to discover these entities of interest and/or predictors, Panther amplifies a user's analytical powers by highlighting the subtle but critical relationships hidden in vast data sets.
