IARPA posts November roundup of active research projects
IARPA’s Hybrid Forecasting Competition research program seeks the help of those interested in testing their skills as a forecaster. HFC’s goal is to develop and test hybrid forecasting methods to radically improve the accuracy and timeliness of geopolitical and geoeconomic forecasts. HFC will combine the ingenuity of human analysts with cutting-edge machine systems to help the intelligence community improve its forecasting capabilities. Those interested in participating in this breakthrough research program can sign up here.
Requests for Information are issued to solicit input from the research community on a particular topic. IARPA is interested in novel, innovative, state-of-the-art capabilities in compact, highly sensitive detectors of special nuclear material for a range of applications. The Detection and Characterization of Special Nuclear Material RFI is issued solely for information gathering and planning purposes and does not constitute a formal solicitation for proposals. IARPA’s latest RFI closes on December 18, 2017.
IARPA also provides an opportunity to submit proposals not aligned with current programs, based on new ideas from the research community.
