Brisbane couple Michael Kowalski and Kate Patterson were both identified as superforecasters by The Good Judgement Project, which won a US government-sponsored forecasting competition starting in 2011. The competition proved that superforecasters could make more accurate predictions than professional intelligence analysts who had access to classified data....Over five years they had the opportunity to answer about 500 different questions provided by the Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA)...

Physicists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have added to their collection of ingredients for future quantum computers by performing logic operations—basic computing steps—with two atoms of different elements. This hybrid design could be an advantage in large computers and networks based on quantum physics....The research was supported by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity, and the Office of Naval Research.

A national intelligence R&D team wants to tackle problems too complex for classical computers, and thinks quantum technology could be the answer. The Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity plans to award a multiyear grant to IBM to build out a small part of what could, in several years, make up a system capable of decoding encrypted information, or plotting the most efficient way to perform a series of tasks.
