ICArUS: Transition to the Intelligence CommunityFebruary 2015
Topics: Intelligence Analysis, Psychology, Neurosciences
The IARPA (Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity) program ICArUS (Integrated Cognitive-neuroscience Architectures for Understanding Sensemaking) developed and tested brain-based computational models of “sensemaking” – a cognitive component of intelligence analysis. MITRE’s role was in Test and Evaluation (T&E) of the neural-computational models developed by several teams of performers. This document discusses the potential for transition of T&E products beyond ICArUS to practical applications and future research in the Intelligence Community. The products and potential uses are summarized by a table in Section 1 (Introduction), and the most promising opportunities are highlighted in Section 3 (Conclusion).
