IARPA Seeks Machine Learning Algorithms for ‘Human-Like’ Info Processing

IARPA_logo_EMThe Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity is calling on potential participants for its Machine Intelligence from Cortical Networks program that seeks to develop machine learning algorithms that leverage neural computational capabilities.

IARPA said in a FedBizOpps notice posted Jan. 8 that the program combines neuroscience and data science concepts to study cortical computing operations using brain mapping tools and build or improve algorithms based on identified knowledge gaps.

The five-year MICrONS program covers three technical areas, from neurophysiological and neuroanatomical data collection through cortical circuit reconstruction.

It also spans three phases that culminate in information processing challenges to evaluate developed algorithms in performing similarity discrimination, generalization, classification and invariant recognition tasks, IARPA said.

The agency will accept responses through March 13.
