Award List:

Integrated Substrate and Thin-film Design Methods

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1998 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Stephen Thaler
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
A recently patented connectionist paradigm, called the hine hose of thin film growth and removal. Trained by exposure to cumulative experimental data, this paradigm may autonomously compute processing routes toward… More

Creative Robots to Defeat Deeply Buried Targets

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Stephen Thaler, President & CEO
Award Amount: $96,320.00
Abstract:
Recent developments in the area of artificial neural networks have led to a totally new brand of machine intelligence that is capable of autonomously improvising and implementing cunning concepts and strategies. This revolutionary neural networktechnology, called the

Creative Robots to Defeat Deeply Buried Targets

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Stephen Thaler
Award Amount: $748,383.00
Abstract:
In Phase I, Imagination Engines, Inc. (IEI) has made revolutionary advances in the field of autonomous robotics by developing deliberative neural architectures capable of self-originating strategies in navigating and mapping virtual reality environments. Having overcome critical technical issues… More

Creative Mobile Terrain Sensing Multi-Valued Behavior Robots

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Dean Vieau, Applications Engineer
Award Amount: $99,556.00
Abstract:
In previous investigations, we have crafted neural architectures for complex, hexapod robots that may invent clever walking strategies based upon absolutely no prior learning. Similarly, we have also shown that the same neural networks may devise variations on these locomotive strategies to propel… More

Creative Mobile Terrain Sensing Multi-Valued Behavior Robots

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Stephen Thaler, President & CEO
Award Amount: $749,997.00
Abstract:
Within our Phase I effort, a radically new kind of neural network based control system that broadly emulates the contemplative capacity of the human brain has been successfully tested aboard a complex hexapod robot. In the course of this preliminary investigation, this neurocontrol system was able… More
