GORDIAN seeks to generate realistic synthetic information for researchers to perform graph alignment and signal detection to assist in the identification of adversaries. Our research has focused on generating realistic behaviors like household expenditures, mobility, criminal activity, use of social media, and more. The resulting in silico society is consistent across agents and time and provides the “haystack” of a society’s digital exhaust into which we can embed the “needle” of an adversaries’ activities, to challenge our colleagues on the detection and identification teams within the larger project.
