The Information Innovation Office is holding a Proposers Day meeting to provide information to potential proposers on the objectives of the new Artificial Social Intelligence for Successful Teams (ASIST) program. ASIST will explore human-machine teaming and machine social intelligence in a teaming context. DARPA envisions computer-based agents that observe their surroundings; build and maintain rich representations of the environment, team, and individuals; infer teammates’ goals (non-verbal behavior); predict teammates’ actions; and assist teams by planning interventions and executing them at appropriate times. During demonstrations in a virtual testbed, ASIST agents will operate in increasingly complex environments and will have to adapt to challenges such as a change in strategy.

The Information Innovation Office is holding a Proposers Day meeting to provide information to researchers on the objectives of the new Assured Micropatching (AMP) program and to facilitate teaming. The goal of AMP is to create the capability for rapid patching of legacy binaries in mission-critical systems, including cases in which the original source code version and/or build process is not available. AMP will create new capabilities to analyze, modify, and fix legacy software in binary form, to produce assured targeted micropatches for known security flaws in existing binaries. Ultimately, AMP intends to demonstrate the use of targeted micropatches for repairing legacy mission-critical binaries with strong guarantees that the patch will not impact the baseline functions of the system. DARPA expects that these prototypes will provide a starting point for technology transition to mission-critical software for cyber-physical system domains.

The Information Innovation Office is holding a Proposers Day meeting to provide information to potential proposers on the objectives of the new Automated Rapid Certification Of Software (ARCOS) program and to facilitate teaming. The goal of ARCOS is to automate the evaluation of software assurance evidence so that certifiers can rapidly determine if system risk is acceptable. “Certification” is the process of determining that a system’s risk is acceptable.

The Information Innovation Office is holding a Proposers Day meeting to provide information to potential proposers on the objectives of the new Guaranteed Architecture for Physical Security (GAPS) program. GAPS will develop hardware and software architectures that can provide physically provable guarantees around high-risk transactions, or where data moves between systems of different security levels. DARPA wants to ensure that these transactions are isolated and that the systems they move across are enabled with the necessary data security assertions. The intended outputs of this program are hardware and software co-design tools that allow data separation requirements to be defined during design, and protections that can be physically enforced at system runtime.

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.
