CISL Research

Situation Room Infrastructure

This Situations Room Infrastructure (SRI) is the core of the technical innovations developed for cognitive and immersive rooms. This infrastructure enables multimodal group-computers dialog, learning and understanding of group activities, reasoning, planning and facilitation of collaborative decision-making. The first use case enabled by the SRI is in the area of mergers and acquisitions. The technologies from the project have laid the foundation for all other CISL use cases.
