MetadataShow full item record
Intelligence is the process of supporting the policymakers in making their decisions by providing them with the specific information they need. Intelligence analysis is the effort of extracting the nature of intelligence issue with the policy goal in mind. It is performed by intelligence analysts who form judgments that add value to the collected material. With the increased open source collection capabilities, there has emerged a need for a model of intelligence analysis that covers the basic elements of valuable information: relevancy, accuracy, and timeliness. There exist models such as vector space model of information retrieval which only addresses the relevancy aspect of information and cannot cope with nonlinear document spaces. In this paper, we discuss the requirements of an integrated model of intelligence analysis along with its peculiar characteristics.
