[Idea sent by Adrian James] UK police intelligence staff were surveyed (n = 110) and a random sample of respondents interviewed (n = 12). Respondents were asked about their work and their relations with the wider law enforcement community. We found that they routinely pr ... more
Important remarks that are going to keep their significance in the future is:
1.The Super predictors and their position inside the group operations, interacting with hierarchies, while they can scrub group workmanship due to their hyper insights and projections.
2.The c ... more
We are living through a fundamental transformation in the way we work. Automation and ‘thinking machines’ are replacing human tasks and jobs, and changing the skills that organizations are looking for in their people. These momentous changes raise huge workforce challeng ... more
Let's hear your ideas and comments - What research knowledge is available now and what research questions need to be investigated in the future to help address these questions:
If individuals/humans are cognitively and perceptually limited, how can the promise of compu ... more

I believe that it is important to get a handle on some of the current needs of the analytic arm of the intelligence community, so that research topics proposed for the Decadal Survey of the Social and Behavioral Sciences will align with actual sponsor needs. In the atta ... more
Our strong recommendation is that the decadal survey of the social and behavioral sciences for national security highlight the pressing need for support of research and data collection/analysis that examines linkages between the situation, status, and security of women, ... more
The emergence of our global intelligence network has greatly impacted the environment in which analysis takes places from the standpoint of the human brain. It's far less personal and no longer includes many important cues and framing that have positive effects on our co ... more
A National Academies study to identify research opportunities in the social and behavioral sciences with potential to contribute to national security and positively impact the work of intelligence analysts. The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, through their studies and reports, provide independent, objective analysis and advice to the nation to enhance public policy and practice.
