Big data processing and in-depth intelligent learning have penetrated into every aspect of life. Big data means the exponentially increasing amount of digital information being created by new information technologies (IT)—such as mobile Internet, cloud storage, social networking, and the “Internet of things”—and the advanced analytics used to process that data.

Big data technologies have already begun to revolutionize commerce and science. In defense intelligence communities, some of these technologies have been adopted for tasks, including technical collection and operational intelligence fusion, according to

Big data’s greatest advantage for the intelligence field is its potential to integrate and organize information. New technologies for collecting, moving, storing, and organizing data could give all-source analysts access to vastly more information with more automation and productivity, thereby allowing them to concentrate on the hardest, highest-priority problems.

Assessment agencies now have an opportunity to incorporate new technologies in a range of defense intelligence problems, including social network analysis, weapons systems modeling, trend analysis for tactical military intelligence etc.
