AIPIO NSW: Producing Intelligence Collaboratively

30 April 2018

5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Macquarie University City Campus, Level 24, 123 Pitt Street

The SWARM Project at the University of Melbourne is a large research effort aimed at improving analytical reasoning, particularly for intelligence analysis. SWARM has major funding from IARPA, the US Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity. We are building a cloud-based platform on which groups work collaboratively to solve difficult intelligence-type problems and produce reports displaying their reasoning. SWARM is inviting organisations to contribute a team (or teams) of analysts to participate in a research exercise in which each team would work on four challenging intelligence-type problems on the new SWARM platform. Team members would spend 3-4 hours per week over five weeks. Participation is online, asynchronous, and anonymous. Organisations can participate without public knowledge.

Our presenter, Tim van Gelder, is currently an Enterprise Research Fellow at the University of Melbourne, and a Principal Investigator in the SWARM Project. He has done considerable work on critical thinking with a focus on structured reasoning, including development of tools for argument mapping. From time to time this has involved working with various parts of the intelligence community, both in Australia and overseas. Tim has addressed previous AIPIO National Conferences. He tweets as @timvangelder

This AIPIO event is co-hosted by the Department of Security Studies and Criminology (SSC) at Macquarie University, Sydney.
