IARPA is currently recruiting thousands of participants to test the analytic methods developed for its CREATE (Crowdsourcing Evidence, Argumentation, Thinking and Evaluation) program.  IARPA is the US Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity.  CREATE is a multi-million-dollar, multi-year R&D effort to improve the core process of intelligence analysis: making well-reasoned inferences from incomplete information. If effective, CREATE analytic tools could greatly assist many other disciplines that depend on good reasoning, including, law, medicine, and public policy. CREATE is a basic research program; it does not involve any security restrictions, and its research outputs will be freely available.

Participating might be interesting for anyone working in applied epistemology, critical thinking, informal reasoning, or probabilistic reasoning.  It might also be helpful for students wishing to develop their analytical reasoning skills.
