The Semantic Analysis Workbench (SAW): Towards a Framework for Knowledge Gathering and Synthesis

We describe a tool called the Semantic Analysis Workbench (SAW) that integrates a broad set of analysis and search functions to support the Unstructured Information Management (UIM) lifecycle. We discuss the SAW and its application to an intelligence scenario and articulate the requirements for an underlying framework that supports Knowledge Gathering and Synthesis (KoGS) tasks.
