AFRL Hosts Collaborative Machine Learning Event with DoD, Universities

Jeff Brody

Engineers and scientists from the Department of Defense and Air Force Research Laboratory met with representatives from various universities to augment collaborative efforts and discuss potential machine learning research gaps. Attendees from the University of Chicago, University of Wisconsin-Madison and Toyota Technological Institute joined government experts to examine concerns in autonomous, command and control and artificial intelligence technologies, the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base said Tuesday.

AFRL aims to modernize machine learning applications in the U.S. Air Force via the development of research methods, algorithms and theories under the University Center of Excellence on Efficient and Robust Machine Learning initiative. The effort will also work to tap potential machine learning professionals from the government and academic sectors through seminars, joint projects, partnerships and open engagements.
