Paper Abstract

This paper considers the applicability of algorithms, constraint solving and active structure across the spectrum of complexity of information fusion applications. Information fusion is recast as a cognitive application using dynamic structure building and constraint reasoning. The similarity between situation awareness and an undirected structure responding to change is highlighted. The efficiency and speed of operation of cognitive information fusion are touched on. A tsunami warning system provides an example which involves multiple threat and demonstrates the difference between segmented algorithms making decisions without context, and the active use of knowledge.
