Arati Prabhakar, director of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, highlighted  technologies DARPA developed through sustained support from the Defense Department in the past six decades during a Center for Strategic and International Studies-hosted panel discussion, DoD News reported Thursday.

Cheryl Pellerin writes Prabhakar said that DoD supported DARPA’s efforts to develop technologies in areas such as artificial intelligence, internet, modern microelectronics, precision strike and stealth.

“We have to design systems that are inherently able to keep progressing at the pace of the underlying technology,” said Prabhakar.

“I think that’s the only way we’re going to get ahead in the kind of technological environment that we’re in today.”

She noted thatDARPA allots resources on projects with ambitious goals and performs work to mitigate risks of the technologies that are then handed off to people and companies that make such technologies operational.

Prabhakar added that technology works to help people reduce poverty around the world and the private sector works to increase research-and-development efforts work to help grow economies.
