DARPA Conference Center
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is sponsoring an Academic Research Roundtable event with the broader potential performer community in higher education for the purpose of engaging its members in a dialogue on technology and research opportunities. The event will include discussion of the Agency’s vision and goals, overviews of each of DARPA’s technical offices by office leadership, and an explanation of the mechanics of working with DARPA.

The Tactical Technology Office is holding a Proposers Day to provide information on the structure and objectives of the Angler program. Angler seeks to migrate advancements from terrestrial and space-based robotics, terrestrial autonomous manipulation, and underwater sensing technologies into the realm of undersea manipulation, with specific focus on long-distance, seabed-based missions. Specifically, the program aims to discover innovative autonomous robotic solutions capable of navigating unstructured ocean depths, surveying expansive underwater regions, and physically manipulating manmade objects of interest.

DARPA has long been a leader in the field of artificial intelligence, establishing the foundations of the field and leading creation of expert systems, and then supporting the expansion of machine learning. The agency’s most recent investments — undertaken as part of DARPA’s $2 billion AI Next campaign — are supporting a shift in AI systems from tools alone to trusted, collaborative partners in problem solving. To increase awareness of DARPA’s expansive AI R&D efforts, the agency is hosting an Artificial Intelligence Colloquium (AIC) in March 2019. The event will bring together the Department of Defense research community and stakeholders to learn more about DARPA’s current and emerging AI programs, and discover how the technologies in development could apply to diverse missions.

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.
