DARPAThe safety of emerging autonomous systems is critical. This concern motivated our Assured Autonomy program, which is exploring formal assurances for the ML algorithms that underlie such systems. While still early, researchers are demonstrating progress: darpa.mil/news-events/20…pic.twitter.com/jT8K6hrG6b
DARPAThe effort was funded by our L2M program, which is exploring biological mechanisms that underlie learning and working to translate them into systems that can learn continuously during operation.
Most technologies are made from steel, concrete, chemicals, and plastics, which degrade over time and can produce harmful ecological and health side effects. It would thus be useful to build technologies using self-renewing and biocompatible...
DARPADARPA seeks to drive U.S. industrial base excellence in quantum computing hardware. We're interested in knowing if companies would form a consortium with us and other quantum researchers to collaborate across & provide access to quantum hardware: go.usa.gov/xpeNqpic.twitter.com/yRaoy0hLbg
DARPAWe're hosting a Proposers Day meeting on January 7, 2020, in Arlington, Virginia, and via webcast to provide additional information to interested researchers. Get the details at go.usa.gov/xpftE. We're seeking experience in #materials & #synbio, among other areas. pic.twitter.com/H56AwKOr3R
DARPAIn the field, you take water where you can find it. Atmospheric Water Extraction sets the goal of extracting a human's daily supply of drinking water on the spot, from the air, even in arid climates. Variations of the tech could support up to 150 people. go.usa.gov/xpft8pic.twitter.com/EiZunMi9Av
DARPACRISPR might finally open the door to a “Tricorder” like capability to rapidly, accurately, and specifically diagnose pathogens. In a Q&A with @IEEESpectrum, DIGET PM Renee Wegrzyn explains how that could work.
Innovation has enough complications. Contracting shouldn’t be one of them. Other Transactions offer many unique opportunities for industry and government collaboration.
DARPA30 yrs ago, Sec. 251 of Public Law 101-189 authorized DARPA to enter into flexible Other Transactions (OT) agreements w/ innovators that don't normally work w/ govt. First OT was a $10M agreement w/ Gazelle Microcircuits for R&D of gallium arsenide tech. go.usa.gov/xyYsmpic.twitter.com/8bV0mOqN9G

DARPAImagine a global network of detectors & assays that use gene editors to accurately & precisely identify & characterize pathogens in < 15 mins to provide health officials with trusted info to triage & treat. That’s DIGET. Proposers Day Dec. 11 in Atlanta.
DARPAWant to steer neurotechnology in positive directions? Take part in our Bridging the Gap Plus program, an effort to overcome the debilitating effects of spinal cord injury using AI & advanced interfaces with the nervous system.

DARPASynthetic biology is opening up new avenues for producing food & water. Our ReSource program aims to create portable, self-contained systems that quickly convert energy-dense waste into food for stabilization missions.
