In this paper, we introduce an advanced software tool for modeling asymmetric threats, the Adaptive Safety Analysis and Monitoring (ASAM) system. The ASAM system is a hybrid model-based system for assisting intelligence analysts to identify asymmetric threats, to predict possible evolution of the suspicious activities, and to suggest strategies for countering threats. It employs a novel combination of hidden Markov models (HMMs) and Bayesian networks (BNs) to compute the likelihood that a… CONTINUE READING
