Vector Launch, Virgin Orbit, and VOX Space are the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency’s (DARPA) qualifying competitors for the Launch Challenge, which aims to enable the military to launch on-demand small payloads into space. DARPA awarded $400,000 to each competitor that completed the qualification phase, and now the competitors will attempt to launch to low-Earth […] […]

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) will host its second annual Electronics Resurgence Initiative (ERI) summit in Detroit, July 15–17. ERI – a five-year, upwards of $1.5 billion investment to develop a specialized, secure, and automated electronics industry – has created collaborations among the defense industrial base, private electronics sectors, and academic researchers. DARPA […] […]

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.

Machine learning AI-min

The Department of Defense’s many artificial intelligence programs–currently over 600 and counting–generally share one stated goal: the blend of humans and machines working as a team, in which AI systems become “partners in problem-solving,” as opposed to our new overlords. Whether in jobs such as cybersecurity, analyzing reams of data, images, and video, operating swarms of drones, or disaster assistance, the idea is to have AI and machine learning systems that augment and improve what personnel can do.

Machine learning AI modernization

It turns out a little knowledge can indeed be a dangerous thing.

That’s something the Army Research Laboratory (ARL) discovered when testing the value of artificial intelligence (AI) as an aid to battlefield decision-making. Researchers from ARL and the University of California, Santa Barbara, found in a series of test scenarios that people trust their own judgement more than they trust an AI’s advice. This was true even when an AI agent provided perfect guidance,  and when ignoring that advice led to negative results. People might trust an AI personal assistant to recommend a movie or the best way to drive to the theater, but not so much when they have skin–or their own skin–in the game.
