IARPA to brief industry on financial intelligence analysis initiative during 14 July industry day
WASHINGTON, 19 June 2011. The Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) will host industry briefings 14 July to outline a new initiative to develop tools to help intelligence analysts sift through massive amounts financial data quickly to pinpoint information relevant to national security. IARPA officials expect to develop tools involving mathematical and behavioral modeling for investment analysis, financial engineering, applied mathematics, computer science, and statistics.
Intelligence analysts working with financial information must deal with the same massive amounts of financial data that financial analysts do, yet intelligence analysts have few computational tools to help provide insights into the financial context of worldwide events. The MATCHES program seeks to change all that.
IARPA is scheduling the MATCHES industry day in anticipation of releasing a formal solicitation for the program. The industry day briefings are to brief industry, respond to industry questions, as well as to enable potential bidders to demonstrate their capabilities and form teams.
