The SWARM Platform is a new online system designed to improve analytical reasoning through the use of “crowdsourcing” and structured analytical techniques. The SWARM project has major funding from the US Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA). In 2018 will be conducting a major test of the new system. We have been beta testing for six months; this has included piloting with teams from an intelligence organisation. We now plan a larger exercise, which will be open to intelligence organisations, or organisations with
intelligence functions.

‘Strengthening the Partnership between Intelligence Professionals and Technology’

Modern intelligence professionals are challenged by the growing volume of information, and the speed with which this information is created and distributed in the course of policy development, planning and operations.  Increasingly, technology is having a significant impact on intelligence workflow, skills, and organisation, with analysts using a range of technologies to analyse and add value to information in a timely manner. 
The AIPIO National Intelligence Seminar 2018 will explore the strengthening partnership between humans and technology in the field of intelligence through three activities: a review of industry good practices by KordaMentha; an interactive practitioner workshop based on a real-world case; and a review of workshop findings by expert panel.  AIPIO will draw on these findings to present a White Paper at our National Conference – Intelligence 2018.

Integrated Intelligence 

Intelligence professionals make their living drawing actionable insights from sketchy data, but the growing velocity, volume, variety, and complexity of this data demands more than the popular view of intelligence as solo operators, siloed functions, and exclusive organisations. To be successful, modern intelligence professionals must rely on ‘outsiders’ – business, academe, and public sector institutions – tightly integrated for alignment, complementarity
and synergy.

AIPIO – as a critical change agent in the intelligence profession – stands ready to engage, support,advise, and partner to advance this goal of ‘integrated intelligence’.  We believe advancing this goal requires measured ​investment ​in collaboration, technology, and capability.
