DARPA’s Defense Sciences Office (DSO) is hosting a Proposers Day to provide information to potential proposers on the objectives of the Systematizing Confidence in Open Research and Evidence (SCORE) program. SCORE aims to develop and deploy automated tools to assign "confidence scores" to different social and behavioral science (SBS) research results and claims. Confidence scores are quantitative measures that should enable a DoD consumer of SBS research to understand the degree to which a particular claim or result is likely to be reproducible or replicable. The event will be available via a live webcast for those who would like to participate remotely.
The purpose of the Multi-Domain Analytics (MDA) program is to enable automated data analysis across networks at different security levels, without manually moving impracticably large amounts of data. Each network contains different sets of data, which must be correlated in order to create a comprehensive context.
SDR and software development kits (SDK) such as GNU Radio exist as free and open source technologies that are widely used in research, industry, academia, government, and hobbyist environments to support both wireless communications research and real-world radio systems. However, even with high end multi-core x86 central processing units (CPU) there are adaptive radar, electronic warfare (EW), and communications applications that cannot be implemented onto SDR with a purely homogeneous CPU due to high latency and power consumption.
The Department of Defense (DoD) often leverages social and behavioral science (SBS) research to design plans, guide investments, assess outcomes, and build models of human social systems and behaviors as they relate to national security challenges in the human domain. However, a number of recent empirical studies and meta-analyses have revealed that many SBS results vary dramatically in terms of their ability to be independently reproduced or replicated, which could have real-world implications for DoD’s plans, decisions, and models. To help address this situation, DARPA’s Systematizing Confidence in Open Research and Evidence (SCORE) program aims to develop and deploy automated tools to assign "confidence scores" to different SBS research results and claims.
