IARPA to hold open house

The Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity will be hosting its first IARPA Day on Oct. 29-30 in the College Park, Md., area.

IARPA performs high-risk, high-payoff research to address challenges in the intelligence community. IARPA day will provide a unique look at the breadth and depth of the agency’s research through briefings, discussions and demonstrations of several current programs, including:

  • The Aggregative Contingent Estimation program, which seeks to improve forecasting of world events through the wisdom of crowds.
  • The Trusted Integrated Chips program, which addresses supply-chain security and intellectual property with a new chip-fabrication approach.
  • The Strengthening Human Adaptive Reasoning and Problem-solving program, which explores ways to enhance analysts' ability to reason though complex and ambiguous problems.
  • The Babel program, which is creating technology to provide robust search tools for human speech in any language in the world.

At IARPA day attendees can speak directly with agency leadership and IARPA's program managers about their work and experiences, as well as career opportunities at the research agency.

The event is being held on two days, the first day (Oct. 29) is only for attendees with Top Secret//SCI clearances and will be held at IARPA. The second day (Oct. 30) is entirely unclassified and will be held in a facility close to IARPA.
