Algorithmic Warfare: DARPA’s “AI Next” Program Bearing Fruit

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) made headlines last fall when it announced that it was pledging $2 billion for a multiyear effort to develop new artificial intelligence (AI) technology. “Months later, DARPA’s ”AI Next” program is already bearing fruit,” said Peter Highnam, the agency’s Deputy Director. “DARPA — which has, for decades, fostered

Hummingbird Robot Using AI to Go Soon Where Drones Can’t

What can fly like a bird and hover like an insect? Your friendly neighborhood hummingbirds. If drones had this combo, they would be able to maneuver better through collapsed buildings and other cluttered spaces to find trapped victims. Purdue University researchers have engineered flying robots that behave like hummingbirds, trained by machine learning algorithms based

NYPD”s Machine-Learning Software Spots Crime Patterns

The NYPD developed Paternizer software uses a machine learning (ML) based approach to recognize patterns in large databases of activity reports. The techniques developed and lessons learned could prove useful for similar counter-terrorism and military activities. Pattern-recognizing algorithms are helping the New York City Police Department sort through crime data to find relationships among three
