IARPA in the News


The administration plans to outright to eliminate the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy, an energy research and development unit. And though it’s not mentioned directly in the White House’s preliminary requests, one intelligence community group is bracing for tighter federal research budgets across government.

“We’re very interested in the science of science,” Jason Matheny, Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity director, said at a Government Analytics Breakfast event in Washington on Wednesday.

In early February, the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) announced a multi-year effort to develop and test collaboration methods to improve reasoning. The Crowdsourcing Evidence, Argumentation, Thinking, and Evaluation (“CREATE”) program intends to improve analysts’ and decision makers’ understanding of the information that supports their conclusions.

Fingerprint recognition systems are one of the mostly widely used biometrics, found on devices such as cellphones and laptops. Like any non-biometric systems, though, fingerprint sensors come with vulnerabilities. That leaves many opportunities for fooling the fingerprint sensor into false recognition....A better solution, then, would be to develop new technologies that would detect hacker attacks against any type of fingerprint sensors. According to Chris Boehnen, senior program manager at the Intelligence Advanced Research Activity (IARPA), the Odin program that is set up to start in early March 2017 aims to develop just such technologies.
