Dec 21, 2018

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) recently announced that it will be hosting an Artificial Intelligence (AI) Colloquium (AIC) March 6-7, in Alexandria, VA. The AIC will spotlight recent research advancements that have taken place thanks to DARPA’s investments in AI. Among other things, the AIC seeks to:

  • Strengthen and expand DARPA’s innovation ecosystem by engaging a broad range of scientists, engineers, and technologists across the nation’s academic and industrial bases;
  • Inform stakeholders of DARPA’s vision and priorities for AI, in the context of national security, to better enable collaboration and transition of technologies; and
  • Inspire the technical research community to seek research and development partnerships with the Agency by sharing DARPA’s record of innovative achievements.

The AIC is geared towards scientists, engineers and technologists concerned with the issues AI poses for military and civilian society, with presentations geared towards a technical audience. Along with panels on DARPA’s existing and new programs, the AIC will also include an update on DARPA’s Artificial Intelligence Exploration (AIE) program; a panel discussion on the ethical implications and considerations surrounding the advancement of AI technologies; and poster sessions that provide attendees with opportunities to engage with the researchers supporting DARPA’s AI programs.
