What will we learn from CREATE?
CREATE research studies will help us learn more about how people reason when solving complex problems, and how they communicate their reasoning to other people. We are particularly interested in how teams share and evaluate possible solutions, and how they collaborate to develop a common solution.

Our findings will inform and shape the tools and processes that intelligence analysts use to develop and communicate their reasoning. Our goal is to help the Intelligence Community reason comprehensively and communicate clearly so that they can, in turn, help our policymakers and government leaders make better decisions.

Although this research is focused on helping the Intelligence Community, the same insights can also help other professionals who solve hard problems from incomplete evidence.

Who is funding this research?
The CREATE research studies are funded by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA).
