The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is issuing an Artificial Intelligence Exploration (AIE) Opportunity, inviting submissions of innovative basic or applied research concepts in the technical domain of automated knowledge discovery, curation, and application. This AIE Opportunity is being issued under the Program Announcement for AIE, DARPA-PA-18-02. All proposals in response to the Automating Scientific Knowledge Extraction (ASKE) opportunity, as described herein, will be submitted to DARPA-PA-18-02-01.
This AIE Opportunity is soliciting proposals to develop approaches to build, maintain, and reason over rich models of complex systems (physical, biological, social, engineered, or hybrid systems) by interpreting and exposing scientific knowledge and assumptions in existing model code and documentation, identifying new data and information resources automatically, extracting useful information (causal relations, correlations, context, parameters, etc.) from these sources, integrating this useful information into machine-curated expert models, and executing these models in robust ways.
