Two months ago, the President signed an executive order to accelerate the research and development of artificial intelligence tools in government. It laid out six strategic goals for federal agencies: Promote “sustained investment” in AI R&D with industry, academic and international partners. Improve access to “high-quality and fully traceable federal data.” Reduce the barriers to […] […]

The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) has issued a Request for Information (RFI) on how to use artificial intelligence (AI) technologies for natural language processing (NLP) to gain insights into complex language in government policy.

Army DoD military Defense AI

The U.S. Army, which has been putting a lot of work into its electronic warfare systems, is now turning to artificial intelligence to make those systems work.The service’s Cyber Electromagnetic Activities (CEMA) teams and other soldiers conducting electronic warfare (EW) have a lot of information to sift through as data comes in from an array of sensors and other sources, ranging from satellite to cellphone communications. All that data is intended to go to one computer screen, which can become cluttered, to say the least.

Machine learning AI-min

When it comes to getting artificial intelligence systems to be more “human,” robots apparently have to learn to walk before they can run.The Pentagon’s top research arm recently hit a milestone in enabling a machine to learn without having to go through a lot of reprogramming at each stage, like they do now. And they did it with a robotic limb teaching itself to walk.

The Japanese seem to have robots that do it all. They’ve made bots that can pitch a baseball, play the violin, mimic a toddler, or even cook up some pancakes. But Japanese United Nations (U.N.) Ambassador Nobushige Takamizawa drew an ethical line in the country’s robotics development when he said today that Japan has not and will not develop fully automated weapons systems.
