In espionage, intelligence, also known as ‘intel’ or active intelligence refers to discrete or secret information with currency and relevance such information for its accuracy and value. Intel also includes the abstraction, evaluation, and understanding of information for accuracy and value in decision-making.
Sometimes called “active data” or “active intelligence”, intelligence typically regards the current plans, decisions, and actions of people, as these may have urgency or may otherwise be considered “valuable” from the point of view of the intelligence-gathering entity. Active intelligence is treated as a constantly mutable component, or variable, within a larger equation of understanding the secret, covert, or otherwise private “intelligence” of an opponent, or competitor, to answer questions or obtain advance warning of events and movements deemed to be important or otherwise relevant.
