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.

The Defense Sciences Office is holding a Proposers Day meeting and webcast to provide information to potential proposers on the objectives of the SIGMA+ program’s Network and Analytics thrust area. SIGMA+ will develop a persistent, real-time, early detection system for the full spectrum of chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosives (CBRNE) WMD threats at the city-to-region scale. The Network and Analytics thrust will pursue developments for automated, large-scale intelligence and data analytics for the SIGMA+ system, further developments for the SIGMA network backbone that are expected to be required to perform full fusion of these data and methods, and interface and interoperability.

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Defense Sciences Office (DSO) is sponsoring a Proposers Day to provide information to potential proposers on the objectives of an anticipated Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for the SIGMA+ initiative (sensors thrust). The Proposers Day will be held on March 7, 2018 from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time at the Executive Conference Center (4075 Wilson Boulevard, Suite 300, Arlington, VA 22203).

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.

CENTRA Technology Incorporated Conference Center
DARPA’s Tactical Technology Office is hosting a Proposers Day to provide information to potential applicants on the structure and objectives of the new Urban Reconnaissance through Supervised Autonomy (URSA) program. URSA aims to develop technology to enable autonomous systems operated and supervised by U.S. ground forces to detect hostile forces and establish positive identification of combatants before U.S. troops encounter them. The URSA program seeks to overcome the inherent complexity of the urban environment by combining new knowledge about human behaviors, autonomy algorithms, integrated sensors, multiple sensor modalities, and measurable human responses to discriminate the subtle differences between hostile individuals and noncombatants.
