William Binney


Over the years, Bill Binney has applied mathematical discipline to collection, analysis and reporting. In the process, he formulated Set Theory, Number Theory and Probability applications to collection, data analysis and intelligence analysis. Based on this experience, he was able to structure analysis and transform it into a definable discipline making it possible to code and automatically execute these functions without human intervention from the point of collection to the end report. The successful automation of analysis formed the foundation for prototype developments in the SARC. These efforts caught the eye of Congressional Staffers and captured their imaginations. So much so that Congress actively supported and funded SARC development of automated systems. These systems revolutionised the business processes by demonstrating how to handle massive amounts of data effectively and relate results to military and other customers. Bill Binney has also organised an international coalition of countries to jointly develop technology, share results and gain the benefits of collaborative efforts.
