DARPA Launches Program to Develop Highly Adaptive AI Platforms

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has announced a new effort to develop adaptive artificial intelligence platforms to address real world scenarios. The agency said Thursday that its Science of Artificial Intelligence and Learning for Open-world Novelty or SAIL-ON program will explore the algorithms and engineering concepts required to build such a platform.


DARPA intends to accommodate proposals during an upcoming industry event on March 5 in Arlington, Va. The program needs experts from across AI areas such as machine learning, plan recognition, probabilistic programming and knowledge representation.

SAIL-ON's end goal is to eliminate the need for large dataset retraining of AI platforms.
