Technical Report
Research Area: 
Cognitive Neuroscience

Intelligence analysts often encounter texts and other source materials that pose a problem for which there is no single clear solution due to the presence of massive ambiguity, missing pieces of information, active attempts at distortion, and continuous changes in the relevant background information.
