The Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity and government the U.S. Army Research Office have issued a broad agency announcement for a new program aimed at helping analysts create evidence-based intelligence reports.
A notice posted Monday on SAM.gov says the Rapid Explanation, Analysis and Sourcing Online project is seeking artificial intelligence-powered technology capable of generating feedback and recommendations on draft government reports to improve analytical reasoning.
The program’s goal is to develop automated methods to suggest additional evidence, identify strengths and weaknesses in the draft report’s analytical reasoning and automatically produce comments to improve the quality of argumentation.
The initiative is divided into three phases and each will contain several testing cycles that have approximately 20 challenge problems consisting of a draft report and an analytic question.
Interested parties have until May 8 to respond to the BAA.
