Army researchers are improving how computers manage a myriad of images, which will help analysts across the DOD [Department of Defense] intelligence community.

In a new user interface developed for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA, the U.S. Army Research Laboratory's Dr. Jeff Hansberger designed and created a system that facilitates the visualization, navigation and manipulation of tens of thousands of images.

Hansberger works at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory, or ARL Human Research and Engineering Directorate field element at Redstone Arsenal in Alabama. DARPA selected his design earlier this year for its Visual Media Reasoning, or VMR.

The DARPA VMR system aids intelligence analysts in searching, filtering, and exploring visual media through the use of advanced computer vision and reasoning techniques.

    I remember it learning sunny weather vs other weather. Because the photos of enemy tanks were made under all kinds of weather conditions, while the photos of friendly tanks were all made under the same sunny conditions.
