This document explains how to use an automatable, repeatable process that IDA developed as part of its assessment of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s Causal Exploration (CausX) program. CausX extracts events, causal assertions, and related elements from natural language documents. The IDA process uses open-source software and can be performed on a variety of modern computing platforms to obtain the data IDA used in its CausX assessment.
