  2. UBER-HEB: Universal Biologically-inspired Environment for Research: Hierarchical Ersatz Brain

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: ST081006

    Decades of exponential advancement in computer capabilities have transformed the world, from toddlers’ playthings to the technologies of war and peace. Some further advances are constrained by the limits of von Neumann machines; in particular, they do not learn well. Aptima proposes to conduct a feasibility study to design “UBER-HEB,” a non-von Neumann hierarchical universal learning system. ...

  5. Probabilistic and Relational Inferences in Dynamic Environments (PRIDE)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: ST081004

    Reasoning under uncertainty is a critical capability for systems that support intelligent decision making in defense applications. Probability theory is a sound, widely accepted basis for reasoning under uncertainty. The environments in which decisions are made are rich and complex. Logical languages are powerful and expressive, providing the capability for making general statements and describing ...
