DARPA Chip Effort Advances AI Hardware

Aug 21, 2020 |

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s Electronics Resurgence Initiative (ERI) includes development efforts aimed at AI hardware components needed to provide the computational horsepower for accelerating the movement of big data used in emerging machine learning applications. Read more…

DARPA Floats an ‘Ocean of Things’

Jan 7, 2020 |

The Pentagon’s top research agency is pushing the notion of a data lake to new depths with an oceanic network of floating sensors that would provide the raw data for analytics, including everything from sea state and weather to maritime traffic. Read more…

Air Force AI Plan Treats Data as ‘Strategic’

Oct 3, 2019 |

The U.S. military’s approach to AI is equal parts offense and defense, acknowledging that primary adversary China could also weaponize the technology as a form of asymmetrical warfare in which U.S. Read more…

Facing Up to Image Fakery

Jun 21, 2019 |

The folks who transformed digital imagery nearly three decades ago with the introduction of Adobe Photoshop are now using deep neural networks to help detect doctored faces and other faked imagery. Read more…

AI Enlisted for Air Combat Training

May 13, 2019 |

Despite the billions of dollars invested in front-line fighter aircraft, there has been little actual close-range air combat—so-called dogfights—since the Gulf War of the early 1990s.

Nevertheless, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is using the aerial dogfight scenario to leverage AI as a way of improving the interface between pilot and extremely fast-moving machines. Read more…

Signal Modulation is Boosting Fiber Capacity

Mar 14, 2019 |

Optical fiber and emerging modulation schemes are making it possible to transmit ever-larger amounts of data through fiber-optic pipes. Recent industry demonstrations and government research efforts also have demonstrated novel approaches for moving more data through optical fiber networks as well as boosting the efficiency of scare spectrum. Read more…

DARPA Embraces ‘Common Sense’ Approach to AI

Oct 22, 2018 |

The Pentagon’s top research agency is focusing its considerable AI efforts on the interim stage of machine intelligence between “narrow” and “general” AI.

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), which announced a multi-year $2 billion “AI Next” “campaign last month, is tightening its focus on teaching machine “common sense” reasoning. Read more…

NASA Lab Looks to Spur AI Development

Jun 27, 2018 |

A NASA laboratory is working with Google, Intel and other industry heavyweights to launch applied AI technologies into space.

The space agency’s Frontier Development Lab is targeting four space applications that would use AI and machine learning technologies, including improved prediction of space weather and accelerating the discovery of exoplanets. Read more…

‘Lifelong’ Neural Net Aims to Slash Training Time

May 9, 2018 |

Among the consequences of big data is a wealth of relevant minutiae that can be used to train machine learning and other models. That often translates into processing-intensive steps required to train models to perform a specific task. Read more…

DARPA Expands ‘Lifelong’ Machine Learning Effort

May 3, 2018 |

As AI and machine learning systems advance, real-world applications are exposing limitations such as the inability to adapt to situations beyond the narrow tasks those systems were trained to perform. Read more…
