Planning and Scenario Generation

By combining rich domain modeling, hypothetical reasoning, and forward inference, Cyc provides a rich platform for exploring a range of alternative scenarios.  These can be goal-directed (as used in CycSecure to identify sequences of possible malicious actions that can be performed against a given IT network) or more open-ended to explore potential outcomes from some initial condition.  These capabilities provide the basis for research and analysis applications across a broad set of domains including military/intelligence planning, financial or operational "what-if" analysis, manufacturing optimization, and more.
