A new study by researchers at Arizona State University, Texas A&M, and Yahoo, funded in part by the Office of Naval Research, can predict with 70 percent accuracy the likelihood that your next tweet will be part of a protest....The paper follows years of similar government-funded research into measuring protest dynamics on social media. Perhaps the best known program is the 2011 Open Source Indicators project from the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Agency

A superconducting supercomputer. Such a machine would take advantage of superconducting materials that, when chilled to nearly the temperature of deep space—just a few degrees above absolute zero—exhibit no electrical resistance whatsoever....The exascale push may be superconducting computing’s opening. And the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity, the U.S. intelligence community’s arm for high-risk R&D, is making the most of it.

The Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) has released a broad agency announcement (BAA) seeking proposals to develop, and experimentally test, systems that use crowdsourcing and structured analytic techniques to improve analytic reasoning. At the same time, the organization released three requests for information and announced a March 11 proposers’ day for the Odin program, which is developing methods for detecting attempts to disguise a person’s biometric identity.
