The Information Innovation Office is holding a Proposers Day meeting to provide information to potential performers on the new Semantic Forensics (SemaFor) program. SemaFor seeks to develop innovative semantic technologies for automatically analyzing multi-modal media assets (i.e., text, audio, image, video) to defend against large-scale, automated disinformation attacks. Semantic detection algorithms will determine if media is generated or manipulated; attribution algorithms will infer if media originates from a particular organization or individual; characterization algorithms will reason about whether media was generated or manipulated for malicious purposes. The results of detection, attribution, and characterization algorithms will be used to develop explanations for system decisions and prioritize assets for analyst review. SemaFor technologies could help to identify, understand, and deter adversary disinformation campaigns.
Registration details are available at https://go.usa.gov/xyJWP. Registration closes at 5:00 PM EDT on August 21, 2019, or when capacity is reached.
Please address administrative questions to SemaFor@darpa.mil and refer to the SemaFor Proposers Day (DARPA-SN-19-66) in all correspondence.
DARPA hosts Proposers Days to provide potential performers with information on whether and how they might respond to the Government’s research and development solicitations and to increase efficiency in proposal preparation and evaluation. Therefore, this meeting is open only to registered potential applicants, and not to the media or general public.
