LACAI is currently conducting research on several federally funded projects, including:
|ARCLIGHT develops a new technology to automatically acquire concepts from multimedia data, create and maintain an extensive knowledge graph containing symbolic representations of learned knowledge, while actively soliciting input from human analysts to refine, correct, and update its knowledge.
|This project aims at developing the next generation of AI dialogue agents capable of sustained, fluid, goal-oriented, collaborative interaction with a human analyst on a variety of topics and across multiple domains
|This project develops a new type of human-machine dialogue system that uses deep learning technologies to learn how to recognize and
generate dialogue plans, i.e., semantic and pragmatic structures that represent one party’s goals and intentions, as well as the impact these are having on the other party.

|RADII is a highly automated, user-driven toolkit that identifies Influence Indicators (IIs) and enables intelligence analysts to discover and characterize influence campaigns online, particularly in social media.
|RELAX is concerned with automated methods of authorship attribution and obfuscation using natural language stylistic analysis, as well as extraction of rhetorical, and psychometric indicators from text.
|The Computational Ethnography from Metaphors and Polarized Language (COMETH) Project aims to develop a methodology and accompanying software tools for constructing dynamic socio-behavioral models of communities based on online content that their members produce.
|The Personalized AutoNomous Agents Countering Social Engineering Attacks (PANACEA) Project protects online users against current and future forms of social engineering. It serves as an intermediary between attackers (human, automated, hybrid, coordinated) and the potential victim(s) they target.
|Simulator of Online Social Networks (SimON-PERFECTA) Project is developing a suite of models, methods, and tools for accurate simulation of the spread of information and evolution of influence in online social networks (OSNs) at scale.
