Ted Goranson

Ted Goranson is the recently appointed principal research fellow at Griffith University for defence research in modelling and analysis, in part serving as coordinator for Transdisciplinary Approaches to Modelling Unknowns, a strategic response to DST’s Modelling Complex Warfare initiative. For decades he was a senior research science and lab director for the US intelligence community, focusing on logic, modeling and massive knowledge integration. His initial project migrated from work at MIT, was advised by Eugene Wigner and continued for 25 years. This lab established a vibrant research centre at Stanford, and involved many academics but the core work was performed within a dedicated government lab. Much of the infrastructure used in the intelligence community and now military command and control infrastructure resulted.

While assigned to DARPA, he managed the reinvention of enterprise engineering principles through two multibillion dollar programs, both directly feeding fifth generation systems now fielded. Most manufacturing operations worldwide use this technology, some of which was coordinated through researchers at Griffith.

Advanced situation theory is a constant theme; with international collaborators in molecular biology, new projects include a significant effort in modelling the transition from cognitive event to neurobiological structure. In industry, he worked with US Joint Forces Command to develop the real time multivideo, multisituation object fusion architecture fielded in theatre. A current project focuses on introspective counternarratives to neutralize directed weaponized narratives in social media.

Multiple classified and open patents have been granted. A current focus are the vexing challenges of modelling unknowns for practical military and intelligence effect.
