  1. Explainable AI to support Veterans Transition Assistance Programs (XAI-VTAP)

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: SB163007

    A challenge for Artificial Intelligence recommenders is explaining their reasoning to users. Humans tend to explain concepts with symbolic narratives, which contrasts the way non-symbolic machine learning represents concepts. This research addresses this challenge by grounding the research in the problem of helping transitioning veterans find relevant careers. The developed prototype will provide ...

  2. Generating Material Properties From Flight Representative Structures

    SBC: MATERIALS RESEARCH & DESIGN INC            Topic: ST16C002

    High-speed flight vehicles commonly use carbon / carbon (C/C) and carbon / silicon carbide (C/SiC) for structural components. These materials are chosen because of their superior structural properties at elevated temperatures. Most often, their properties are characterized using flat and thin material test plates. While this approach is convenient, it is not guaranteed to yield material properties ...

  3. Cognitive Bias in Online Communication Activities (C-BOCA)

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: N13AT024

    This effort will analyze publicly available online communication data, uniquely applying empirical results from the cognitive bias literature, to quantify the impact of cognitive biases on exposure to, use of, and propagation of online information. SoarTech, with its partners, will develop and evaluate methods to identify and measure cognitive biases in online information environments. The team wi ...

  4. Transgenic Black Soldier Flies for Sustainable, Improved Nutrition

    SBC: ECHELON BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: SB163002

    We propose to continue our project generating transgenic insect with improved nutrition for humans and livestock, building on the milestones we have reached and will continue to develop in phase I. We have already demonstrated insertion of exogenous reporter DNA into the insect, and continue to develop genetic engineering tools and techniques. We have expressed the biosynthetic pathway of interest ...

  6. Highly Scalable Multiplexed CRISPR Technologies for Medical, Industrial, and Agricultural Applications

    SBC: De Novo DNA            Topic: SB163003

    We propose to create transformative technologies to overcome several CRISPR-wide challenges that will broadly enable scalable, multiplexable gene editing & gene regulation with minimal off-target activity. Our technical solutions combine computational design of optimal CRISPR components, genetic circuits, and RNPs together with experimental validation. We will implement several demonstrative appli ...

  9. Computational Biology Platform Technology for Cellular Reprogramming

    SBC: iReprogram, LLC            Topic: ST17C001

    Methods for interconversion between cell types (cellular reprogramming) are currently discovered through resource intensive trial and error. Experiments may test a multitude of transcription factors to identify correct combinations that influence cell fate. In addition, reprogramming approaches commonly use stem cell intermediates such as induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), which are generated ...

  10. Development of a Rapid Monitoring System for Detection of Pathogens in Marine Aquaculture Operations

    SBC: InnovaPrep, LLC            Topic: 836

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: InnovaPrep proposes to develop a rapid sample-to-answer monitoring system for detecting pathogens in marine aquaculture waters. An assessment of industry needs will include a kickoff meeting with NOAA and a visit to Toby Island Bay Oyster Farm. Following the assessment and report, a TRL-4 breadboard prototype system will be developed that will include the combination of sample ...
