Army-Funded Academic Research Trials Machine Learning Approach to Correct Quantum Info Errors; Sara Gamble Quoted

AI Algorithms

A U.S. Army-supported research team from Louisiana State University has demonstrated the use of machine learning to correct errors found in quantum information systems. The research team tested how a neural network's self-learning and self-evolving functions can correct information used in quantum sensing and communications. This approach is designed to correct the distorted quantum information in photon-composed systems.

Army, Air Force Fund Quantum Computing Research; Sara Gamble Quoted

Quantum Computing

Researchers at University of Massachusetts Amherst have discovered a new type of quantum error correction that could help advance the development of a fault-tolerant quantum computer, which could provide the military with data processing capabilities needed to fight in multidomain operations. “Efficiency is increasingly important as quantum computation systems grow in size to the scales we’ll need for Army relevant applications,” Sara Gamble explained.

Army Senior Scientist Stephen Lee: Interdisciplinary Collaboration Leads to Innovation

Stephen Lee

Stephen Lee, senior scientist for interdisciplinary sciences at the U.S. Army Research Office, said innovation mostly stems from the combination of multiple scientific disciplines. The scientist noted that interdisciplinary collaboration opens opportunities to engage in new research areas that may support soldier performance, the Army said Thursday. Fido is designed to detect explosive vapors.

Army-Supported Research Tackles Brain Signal Separation for Potential Military Applications

Warfighter Behavior

U.S. Army-funded research has demonstrated the isolation of brain signals that help to determine a warfighter's motion and behavior. In support of this goal, U.S. Army Research Office funded a project that used algorithms to separate behavior-relevant brain signals from those that are not. The Army seeks technology that transmits information to a soldier's brain so that he may take preemptive action before an incident occurs.
