ARL Researcher Jeff Hansberger Develops Image Analysis User Interface

darpa_uiJeff Hansberger, a researcher at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory, has developed a new user interface for analysts to view, navigate and manipulate large volumes of images, the Army said Tuesday.

Joyce Conant writes the UI was developed for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s Visual Media Reasoning project to help intelligence analysts search and filter visual media.

“The goal of DARPA’s VMR program is to extract mission-relevant information, such as the who, what, where and when, from visual media captured from our adversaries and to turn unstructured, ad hoc photos and video into true visual intelligence,” Hansberger said.

“Currently, the most effective and alluring way to interact with digital images is through touchscreen technology primarily because it shares some relationship to the ways we interact with physical images,” he added.

Hansberger worked with Chris Bero and Jared McArthur, undergraduate students at the University of Alabama in Huntsville, to develop the touchscreen and the keyboard and mouse versions of the interface.
