The project develops a machine learning technology for continuous planning of operational processes carried out in uncertain, changing environments. We aim to deliver:
- an activity planning methodology based on stochastic modelling, natural-language processing and fusion of dedicated intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance and open-source intelligence
- a software platform for developing continuous planning solutions using our methodology
- a demonstrator for continuous planning of eligible-person evacuation routes for non-combatant evacuation operations.
The project addresses planning challenges common to many defence operations by leveraging recent research from DSTL and EPSRC-funded projects at the University.
