  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  9. Additive Manufacturing Process Monitoring and Control Technologies

    SBC: FLIGHTWARE INC            Topic: DLA181002

    The In Process Control for L-PBF (IPCL) program leverages and in process inspection method recently developed and successfully demonstrated for NASA. This Layer Topographic Map or LTM method measures the surface if every melt layer using a commercial laser profilometer. LTM software detects, locates and identifies flawed regions within a layer for every layer in the part. It does so for several co ...

  10. Extending Shelf Life of Strawberries, Spinach, Kale and Lettuce via Non-Equilibrium Short-Pulsed Plasma Activated Water Fog

    SBC: AA Plasma LLC            Topic: DLA182002

    Current methods for food transportation and storage are insufficient in eliminating contamination threats from food-borne pathogens, resulting in frequent cases of foodborne illness or costly recalls. Perishable products within the DLAs subsistence supply chain are no exception to this problem. AAPlasma LLC proposes a non-equilibrium (cold) plasma-based solution that will continuously disinfect co ...
