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…

U.S. Pursues ‘Abductive’ Reasoning to Divine Intent

Mar 20, 2018 |

The 9/11 Commission identified a lack of coordination among U.S. intelligence agencies as a reason for failing to detect attacks on U.S. soil. One of the responses to the panel’s findings was a multiagency effort to upgrade analytics efforts with particular emphasis on an emerging approach known as abduction that combines higher-order reasoning and machine intelligence to gauge an adversary’s intentions.

Why Cracking the ‘Brain Code’ Is Our Best Chance for True AI

Aug 10, 2017 |

Artificial intelligence is all the rage today, and it’s definitely real, we tell ourselves. Without AI, how do you explain recent breakthroughs like cars that drive themselves and software that diagnoses cancer? Read more…

U.S. Eyes Tools to Spot Faked Images, Video

Aug 24, 2016 |

University researchers are using machine learning along with signal and image processing tools in a military-funded effort to detect doctored images and video, then figuring out how they were manipulated. Read more…

Report: Machine Learning Driving AI

Jul 11, 2016 |

Artificial intelligence research continues to accelerate as human and machines collaborate to solve more complex problems. A new survey by the National Academy of Science identifies the frontiers of AI research that include “augmented cognition” Read more…

DARPA Launches ‘Big Code’ Initiative

May 5, 2014 |

The U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is attempting to take big data analytics to the next level through a “big code” project designed to improve overall software reliability through a large-scale repository of software that drives big data. Read more…
