Workshop Description:
Recent developments in capability, scale, and pervasiveness of computing power have brought new opportunities for monumental advances in information analysis within the safeguards, nonproliferation, and arms control verification communities. More information is available than ever before to support their missions, but the international dialogue on how to use this information has lagged. This workshop brought together analysts, technology experts, and policy makers to discuss challenges, best practices, and the future of information analysis for safeguards, nonproliferation, and arms control verification.

This workshop focused on applications and empirical evaluation of information analysis to the field of safeguards, nonproliferation and arms control verification. Topics included within such applications of information analysis include:

  • Big data challenges and solutions for verification
  • How security affects data analysis (e.g., secure networking of data, access controls, etc.)
  • Machine learning
  • Data mining
  • Information analysis systems and architecture (e.g., ingestion, fusion, analysis of heterogeneous data types, etc.)
  • Information visualization and signal processing
  • One-way transformations
  • Control disclosure mechanisms
  • Link Analysis
  • Geospatial analytical tools
  • Signatures from Open Source Information
  • Social media analytics
