In 2014, DARPA launched the Cyber Grand Challenge (CGC) to develop intelligent systems that might someday take over the painstaking and time-consuming work of searching through billions of lines of software code for vulnerabilities or intrusions. During the competition, the computers played each other in the first-ever all-machine version of the classic hacker game Capture the Flag. Pittsburgh-based team ForAllSecure’s Mayhem Cyber Reasoning System (CRS) took first place at the August 2016 final event, beating out six other computers.
The Mayhem CRS is now on display at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C., as a standalone exhibit titled “Innovations in Defense: Artificial Intelligence and the Challenge of Cybersecurity” and produced by the Lemelson Center for the Study of Invention and Innovation. The exhibit will run through September 17, 2017. Admission to the museum is free. Hours are 10:00 AM – 5:30 PM ET daily.
