Artificial Social Intelligence for Successful Teams (ASIST) Proposers Day
March 14, 2019, 9:00 AM ET
The Information Innovation Office is holding a Proposers Day meeting to provide information to potential proposers on the objectives of the new Artificial Social Intelligence for Successful Teams (ASIST) program. ASIST will explore human-machine teaming and machine social intelligence in a teaming context. DARPA envisions computer-based agents that observe their surroundings; build and maintain rich representations of the environment, team, and individuals; infer teammates’ goals (non-verbal behavior); predict teammates’ actions; and assist teams by planning interventions and executing them at appropriate times. During demonstrations in a virtual testbed, ASIST agents will operate in increasingly complex environments and will have to adapt to challenges such as a change in strategy.
Optimization with Noisy Intermediate-Scale Quantum devices (ONISQ) Proposers Day
March 19, 2019, 9:00 AM ET
The Defense Sciences Office is holding a Proposers Day meeting and webcast to provide information to potential proposers on the objectives of the new Optimization with Noisy Intermediate-Scale Quantum devices (ONISQ) program and to facilitate teaming. The principal objective of the ONISQ program is to demonstrate quantitative advantage of Quantum Information Processing (QIP) over the best classical methods for solving combinatorial optimization problems using Noisy Intermediate-Scale Quantum (NISQ) devices. In addition, the program will identify families of problem instances in combinatorial optimization where QIP is likely to have the biggest impact.
