DARPA AI Colloquium

The United States Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is currently working on 20 different artificial intelligence (AI) programs.

First announced in September, the DARPA AI Next campaign is a multi-year, upwards of $2 billion investment in new and existing programs to create the third wave of AI technologies. To increase awareness of DARPA’s expansive AI R&D efforts, the agency is hosting an Artificial Intelligence Colloquium (AIC) from March 6-7, 2019 in Alexandria, Virginia, DARPA said in a statement last Friday.

This event seeks to bring together the US Department of Defense research community and defense stakeholders to learn more about DARPA’s current and emerging AI programs, as well as discover how the myriad technologies in development could apply to their diverse missions. The AIC will create an environment for the AI community to engage and develop new collaborations to help apply DARPA’s discoveries to challenges relevant to national security.

“Today, DARPA is pursuing more than 20 programs actively exploring ways to advance the state of the art in AI, pushing beyond second wave machine learning towards the third wave of contextual reasoning capabilities,” said Dr. Peter Highnam, DARPA’s deputy director. “In addition, we are actively working on over 50 programs that are leveraging AI in some capacity”.
