Essentials of Activity-Based Intelligence (ABI)



Course Number



1 Day


About This Course: ABI is a new methodology for technology-enabled problem solving developed by the intelligence community for real-time integration of large, diverse disparate data (Big Data) streams. ABI emphasizes the importance of spatial temporal filtering for disambiguation among entities, activities, and locations of interest. Additionally, ABI is a Multiple Intelligence Sources (Multi-INT) approach to activity and transactional data analysis used to resolve unknowns [unknowns], develop object and network knowledge, and drive collection.

You Will Learn How To

  • Communicate the concepts of ABI
  • Decompose an intelligence or defense mission into the four pillars of ABI
  • Identify suitable ABI applications and apply ABI concepts
  • Assess the value of ABI over other contemporary data mining and analysis methods
