ICArUS: Phase 1 Challenge Problem Design and Test SpecificationNovember 2014
Topics: Intelligence Analysis, Neurosciences, Psychology, Modeling and Simulation
Phase 1 of the IARPA program ICArUS (Integrated Cognitive-neuroscience Architectures for Understanding Sensemaking) requires a challenge problem that poses cognitive challenges of geospatial sensemaking. The problem serves as a modeling challenge for performers and enables assessment in T&E (Test and Evaluation) per BAA guidelines. This document describes the Phase 1 challenge problem and outlines the T&E approach for evaluating models in Neural Fidelity Assessment, Cognitive Fidelity Assessment, and Comparative Performance Assessment.
