Areas of Homeland Security: At the Computational Statistical Interface
Deborah Leishman, (Los Alamos National Laboratory),


This talk will outline work being done in several areas within Homeland Security and identify needs for close cooperation and integration of specific computational and statistical methods to achieve success. In particular we will cover application areas such as surveillance, terrorist tracking and image analysis and relate these to the required methods both computational and statistical that underlie them. In particular, this description will describe capabilities such as knowledge integration that are needed at the application level as well as and those required at a more detailed technical computer infrastructure level.
