IARPA Program Seeks to Build Up Analytic Reasoning Through Crowdsourcing-Based Platforms

The Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity has launched a new program to develop and test technology platforms that seek to use crowdsourcing to help analysts and decision makers understand and determine whether assumptions and evidence support their conclusions.

The Crowdsourcing Evidence, Argumentation, Thinking and Evaluation program seeks to “combine crowdsourcing with structured techniques to improve reasoning on complex analytic issues,” Steven Rieber, IARPA program manager, said in a statement released Wednesday.

Teams led by Syracuse University, George Mason University, Monash University and the University of Melbourne received contracts from IARPA to perform research work under the CREATE program.

IARPA awarded the contracts through a competitive process under a broad agency announcement for the program.

John Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory will collaborate with Good Judgment to test the resulting technology platforms from the program.
