The Information Innovation Office is holding a Proposers Day meeting to provide information to potential proposers on the objectives of the new Knowledge-directed Artificial Intelligence Reasoning Over Schemas (KAIROS) program. KAIROS will explore how to understand complex events described in multi-media input by developing a semi-automated system that identifies, links, and temporally sequences their subsidiary elements, identifying the participants of the complex events and the subsidiary elements, and identifying the complex event type. An event is a recognizable and significant change in either the natural world or human society. Events of interest either create changes that have significant impact on national security or participate in causal chains that produce such impacts.
Military commanders responsible for situational awareness and command and control of assets in space know all too well the challenge that comes from the vast size of the space domain. The volume of Earth’s operational space domain is hundreds of thousands times larger than the Earth’s oceans. It contains thousands of objects hurtling at up to 17,000 miles per hour.
Serial Interactions in Imperfect Information Games Applied to Complex Military Decision Making (SI3-CMD) builds on recent developments in artificial intelligence and game theory to enable more effective decisions in adversarial domains. SI3-CMD will explore several military decision making applications at strategic, tactical, and operational levels and develop AI/game theory techniques appropriate for their problem characteristics.
The advance of technology has evolved the roles of humans and machines in conflict from direct confrontations between humans to engagements mediated by machines. Originally, humans engaged in primitive forms of combat. With the advent of the industrial era, however, humans recognized that machines could greatly enhance their warfighting capabilities. Networks then enabled teleoperation, which eventually proved vulnerable to electronic attack and subject to constraint due to long signal propagation distances and times. The next stage in warfare will involve more capable autonomous systems, but before we can allow such machines to supplement human warfighters, they must achieve far greater levels of intelligence.
The DARPA Open Catalog is a public Web portal that shares the publicly releasable results of DARPA research in the form of software, peer-reviewed publications, data and experimental details.
