DARPA Chip Effort Advances AI Hardware

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 m Read more…

DARPA Floats an ‘Ocean of Things’

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 w Read more…

Air Force AI Plan Treats Data as ‘Strategic’

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. military superiority Read more…

Facing Up to Image Fakery

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. Add newer social me Read more…

AI Enlisted for Air Combat Training

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 Adv Read more…

Signal Modulation is Boosting Fiber Capacity

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 demonstrate Read more…

DARPA Embraces ‘Common Sense’ Approach to AI

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 Read more…

NASA Lab Looks to Spur AI Development

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 wou Read more…

‘Lifelong’ Neural Net Aims to Slash Training Time

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 Read more…

DARPA Expands ‘Lifelong’ Machine Learning Effort

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. Indeed, some obs Read more…
