IARPA Director Jason Matheny in Conversation with the Museum’s Center for Software History Director David C. Brock

The Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA), also known as “DARPA for spies,” is the science and technology research arm for the intelligence community. On behalf of the 17 organizations that comprise this community, IARPA invests in “high risk/high payoff” programs to tackle the biggest challenges in intelligence gathering and analysis.

IARPA Director Dr. Jason Matheny joins us to discuss some of the organization’s most exciting research projects, explains how IARPA approaches research investment, and tells us why software matters to the intelligence community.
