US government and private sector developing ‘precrime’ system to anticipate cyber-attacks

The USA’s Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) is soliciting the involvement of the private and academic sectors in developing a new ‘precrime’ computer system capable of predicting cyber-incursions before they happen, based on the processing of ‘massive data streams from diverse data sets’ [1] – including social media and possibly deanonymised Bitcoin transactions.

In January the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA), administrated by ODNI, held a Proposers’ Day Conference [2] for the Cyber-attack Automated Unconventional Sensor Environment (CAUSE) initiative, inviting interest from IBM and other cyber-security companies including Battelle [3], RepKnight [4], the Florida Center for Cybersecurity (FC2) [5], Galois Inc [6], SoarTech [7], SRA International Inc. [8], Vion [9]…and, of course, IBM, which produces technologies used and cited by some of the other vendors in their own proposals.

Dr. Peter Highnam presented the overview [10] on January 21st, initially drawing attention to the interests in the project of no less than 16 major government departments, including the CIA, the Defense Intelligence Agency, the Department of State, the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security and all branches of the US military.
