It is an important problem to define a K-theoretic version of intersection cohomology, with expected applications in representation theory. One step further is to look for a categorification of intersection cohomology. For good moduli spaces $X$ of Artin stack $Y$ (as defined by Alper), we construct some noncommutative resolutions $D(X)$ inside the category $D^b(Y)$. Further, we construct subcategories $I(X)$ of $D(X)$ whose periodic cyclic homology is given by the intersection cohomology of $X$. In particular, the K-theory of $I(X)$ is a natural definition of intersection K-theory for the variety $X$. Passcode: MSUALG
