Adam Russell: IARPA Explores Methods to Build Human Analytical Skills

IARPA_logo_EMThe Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity has kicked off a multi-year collaborative research effort to design new tools and work to help analysts solve complex problems.

IARPA launched the Strengthening Human Adaptive Reasoning and Problem-Solving project to further study cognitive skills in healthy and high-performing people, IARPA said Monday.

“The long-term goal of SHARP research is to develop evidence-based tools and methods that can improve the quality of human judgment and reasoning in complex, real world environments,” said Adam Russell, an IARPA program manager.

“Any successful results from SHARP research could lead to significant benefits for the intelligence community, in particular, as well as society, in general,” he added.

Honeywell, Charles River Analytics and the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign hold contracts under the IARPA program.
