Reza Ghanadan: DARPA Aims to Create Mathematical Models for Complex Data Analysis

big dataThe Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has launched a program to build new computer-based mathematical tools for correlating big data across many scientific disciplines.

DARPA said Thursday the agency aims to speed up the process of complex data analysis, insight generation and scientific discovery through the SIMPLEX initiative.

“We seek to fuel creation of the next generation of analytic tools that can exploit scientific data in new smarter ways by leveraging prior knowledge as the context of discovery while exploring the hidden relations in complex data,” said said Reza Ghanadan, a program manager at DARPA.

The agency is soliciting industry proposals for computational models in areas such as neuroscience, materials and climate science, autonomous platforms, cyber-physical systems and gene-protein disease networks.

DARPA plans to leverage multiple scientific and engineering methods to evaluate SIMPLEX representations and tools.
