IARPA Wants Smarter Algorithms — Not More of Them

Posted by in categories: information science, robotics/AI

“Notice for all Mathmaticians” — Are you a mathmatician who loves complex algorithems? If you do, IARPA wants to speak with you.

Last month, the intelligence community’s research arm requested information about training resources that could help artificially intelligent systems get smarter.

It’s more than an effort to build new, more sophisticated algorithms. The Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity could actually save money by refining existing algorithms that have been previously discarded by subjecting them to more rigorous training.

Nextgov spoke with Jacob Vogelstein, a program manager at IARPA who specializes in in applied neuroscience, about the program. This conversation has been edited for length and clarity.
