DARPA Artificial Intelligence Colloquium Opening Video

Throughout DARPA’s history, artificial intelligence (AI) has been an important area of groundbreaking research and development (R&D). In the 1960s, DARPA researchers completed some of the foundational work in the field, leading to the creation of expert systems, or the first wave of AI technologies. Since then, DARPA has funded developments in the second wave of AI – machine learning – which has significantly impacted defense and commercial capabilities in areas such as speech understanding, self-driving cars, and image recognition. Today, DARPA continues to fund AI innovation, making multiple investments in research that aim to shape a future in which AI systems shift from tools to trusted, collaborative partners in problem solving.

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 hosted an Artificial Intelligence Colloquium (AIC) March 6-7, 2019 in Alexandria, Virginia. This event brought together the DoD 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.

This brief opening video highlights DARPA’s history in AI and its outlook for the future.

DARPA ERI Summit 2018: The Intertwined History of DARPA & Moore’s Law

DARPA ERI Summit 2018: The Intertwined History of DARPA & Moore’s Law

Dr. William Chappell gives an overview of DARPA’s Electronics Resurgence Initiative, including a discussion of previous programs, new programs, and the importance of Gordon Moore’s seminal 1965 paper.

ERI Overview
On June 1, 2017, DARPA’s Microsystems Technology Office (MTO) announced its Electronics Resurgence Initiative (ERI) to ensure far-reaching improvements in electronics performance well beyond the limits of traditional scaling. Recognizing challenges to keeping on pace with Moore’s Law, ERI draws both on new (“Page 3”) and existing (“Foundational”) DARPA programs to make a significant investment into enabling circuit specialization and managing complexity. Page three of Gordon Moore’s seminal 1965 paper described research areas required to manage the technical and economic challenges we face. In deference to Moore’s ideas, ERI’s “Page 3” investments support research and development in each of these areas: Architectures, Designs, and Materials and Integration. To fully unlock microelectronics innovation and maintain technical superiority for the Department of Defense (DoD), ERI builds on the tradition of other successful government-industry partnerships and aims to forge forward-looking collaborations among the commercial electronics community, defense industrial base, university researchers, and DoD.

Wide Band Gap Semiconductors

Starting in 2001, DARPA made a major investment in gallium nitride (GaN) transistor and Microwave Monolithic Integrated Circuit (MMIC) technologies with the Wide Band Gap Semiconductors for Radio Frequencies (WBGS-RF) program. The technologies created from this and related programs have already had a critical impact on major DoD systems and capabilities. The panelists discuss the WBGS-RF program – its history, accomplishments, and technological beneficiaries – as a case study on how DARPA can best contribute to the DoD mission. In WBGS-RF, DARPA chose to develop a “boutique” technology that offered specific capabilities rather than depend on the commercial electronics industry. When should DARPA invest in such boutique electronics? How can fundamental advancements in technologies like those developed in WBGS-RF be most rapidly transitioned to provide military advantage? What opportunities exist today to extend US dominance in systems that use high power amplifiers?

Information-driven Materials & Manufacturing

Over the past 60 years, DARPA has been a major initiator as well as a beneficiary of broad advances in structural materials and mechanical design and manufacturing. This session will examine the evolution of those disciplines from DARPA’s creation of the field of material sciences in late 1960’s, and the parallel evolution of information-driven advances in engineering and manufacturing. Together, these broad arcs span scales from nanomaterials to weapon systems, and continue to transform processes at every level in the industrial base. The result has been steady progress to today’s Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME), Model Based Engineering, and Digital Manufacturing practices, and to the convergence of important trends in all three. Remarks by panelists and a facilitated discussion with the audience explore needs and opportunities for further advancements and for potential DARPA focus areas that could benefit DoD and the industrial base for years to come.

MTO Office Panel: Sensors and the Electromagnetic Spectrum

Effective land, sea, air, space, and cyber-based combat operations require deep connections between the physical and digital domains. DoD systems often develop an accurate picture of the physical world, transmit sensor data across the electromagnetic spectrum, digitally process that data to enable smart decisions, and then conduct multi-actor operations aligned with decision-maker needs. MTO enables this interaction between the physical and digital worlds by recognizing the need for extensive and diverse sensor arrays, creating power-efficient hardware for real-time data fusion and exploitation, and developing systems that adapt to changes in the spectrum such as unfamiliar jamming and spoofing techniques. Program Managers discuss MTO’s vision for the future of networked operations. Discussion techniques include radio frequency, optical, and other low-footprint hardware for assured connectivity; options for enabling positioning, navigation, and timing with limited spectrum access; and electronics capabilities for ubiquitous sensing.

Future of Space

For decades, the US relied on its ability to build, launch, and operate exquisite systems into space, enjoying the advantages of global presence and relative sanctuary. Over the past decade, however, these advantages are being degraded by the rise of peer and near peer competitor capabilities, leveraging the microelectronics revolution, small satellites, and improved access to space. A nascent commercial sector is introducing further disruption, proposing new models for development, deployment, and operation that outpace the traditional and deliberate approach favored by DoD and other government agencies. These new forces represent both a challenge and an opportunity.

In this uncertain environment, where space’s future is truly up for grabs, Dr. Tony Tether, former Director of DARPA moderates a discussion about the Future of Space in the context of the interplay between the military, civil, and commercial sectors.

The US Department of Defense spent over $360 million to confirm there are problems in the $2.7 trillion organization, but the Pentagon leadership considers the mere fact that this “first-ever” audit happened was a great success.

Kid Rock For Senate & The Equifax Cyber Attack: VICE News Tonight Full Episode (HBO)

September 13, 2017, FULL EPISODE of VICE News Tonight on HBO.

VICE News examines the Michigan Republican Party after Trump’s upset win. Outside Michigan, all anyone is talking about is Kid Rock. What’s the conversation inside the state when it comes to 2018?

Starting last year under Obama, the army has been delaying shipping dates, and as a result many recruits have fallen out of legal visa status, after being promised citizenship by signing up to serve the U.S. military. They might face deportation once the DOD cancels their contracts. VICE News speaks with two MAVNI recruits from China as they await their fate in Indiana.
