IamA lead researcher working on a U.S. Intelligence funded project developing a platform for crowdsourcing analysis to improve human reasoning, AMA!
I'm Dr Tim van Gelder, working on the University of Melbourne (Australia) based SWARM Project, which is a 4.5 year program of research into how human reasoning can be improved. We are funded by IARPA (Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity) to develop a new type of platform for collaborative intelligence analysis, combining crowdsourcing with new structured analytical techniques.
