MITRE/ATARC Big Data White Paper

MITRE-ATARC Big Data Collaboration Symposium, December 13, 2016


Big Data Challenge Areas

  • Big Data for Autonomy and Autonomous Systems
  • Big Data and Cyber Security
  • Big Data as a Catalyst
  • Leveraging Big Data forMission Success
  • Big Data and Health Care

Key Recommendations to Government

  • Autonomous systems should not make the complete decision. Each system requires a threshold of meaningful human control
  • There is a need for a special education tract to teach unique cyber security skills
  • Much policy and integration work is needed to enable technical implementation of greater data sharing
  • Data availability is a double-edged sword; we often do not have the data and we often can’t trust it when we do have it
  • Development of a standard ontology can overcome some issues with different data definitions, versions, and iterations
