VANESSA: Virtual Analytic Networks and Explanations for Social Sensing Analysis

VANESSA is a newly awarded Phase I STTR under the Social Sensing topic with the goal to develop a social sensing platform providing team diagnostics of interacting teams and recommendations for enhanced functioning of human and human-cyber teams and for the assessment of 1) individuals within teams, 2) interactions between team members and 3) patterns between teams. We use a multi-level and multi-method approach (based on Fiore and Kapalo) to integrate theory-driven team research insights with a network analytical approach stretching over micro-, meso- and macro-levels of analysis.
