Com ABSTRACT We will report and discuss results of an effort to adapt country-level modeling techniques developed in DARPA’s Integrated Crisis Early Warning System (ICEWS) program to produce forecasts and analyses at a much more granular level, focusing on districts in Kandahar and Kunduz, Afghanistan. The challenge of this work in Afghanistan is not only to bridge theoretical models to operational needs at an appropriate level of granularity, but also to overcome modeling obstacles that are unique to Afghanistan, at least in comparison with the national models that were the focus of the ICEWS project.

It consists of classes, properties, and individuals. In an ontology, the domain of knowledge is modeled by a conceptualization that consists of a controlled vocabulary. The ontology specifies this conceptualization (for instance by using a standard computer readable language) and thus describes the domain. The most formal types of ontologies are encoded in machine readable languages to provide automatic inferencing and use by general programs. Figure 1 shows how application ontologies (such as the IW Metric Ontology) are supported by a notional “stack” of languages including the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Ontology Language - OWL 2.

Figure 1. Kendall’s Tau matched pair comparisons of Kandahar and Kunduz model output with a Subject Matter Expert’s assessment Misses are disaggregated in figure 1 to see whether we ranked the district “too high” or “too low” compared to the expert assessment. “Ties” occur when the expert ranked the two districts the same on a scale of 1-5 for a particular metric, so relational position can’t be assessed. For Kandahar, 16 districts are assessed against each of the other 15 districts across 4 metrics, giving a total of 60 paired comparisons.
