Abstract

A Comprehensive Framework for Culturally Adaptive Policy Management for Coalition Mission Planning John Karat, Winston Sieck, Timothy J. Norman, Clare-Marie Karat, Carolyn Brodie, Louise Rasmussen, Katia Sycara IBM TJ Watson Research, Applied Research Associates, University of Aberdeen, Carnegie Mellon University Abstract: A three-phase fundamental research project is underway to determine the value of context-sensitive policy management technology, informed by algorithms based on cultural models and collaborative decision making, to coalition partners in mission planning and execution. Three project teams in TA2 and TA4 are collaborating and leveraging their research frameworks and current results in policy lifecycle management, cultural analysis, and decision support in this effort. The paper describes the three technical areas, the potential value of their integration in a new perspective, a set of research questions, and the three-phase research approach of theoretical work, field interview research, and development of the system. The rationale and initial research reported in this collaboration may motivate and inform other collaborations within the ITA project.
