Raytheon‘s BBN Technologies subsidiary has awardedÂ aÂ $2.3 million subcontract toÂ Polaris AlphaÂ for assistance inÂ developingÂ new artificial intelligence tools for theÂ Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.
The team aims to developÂ semantic-based technologies for abductive reasoning under the agency’sÂ Active Interpretation of Disparate Alternatives program that seeks to construct an adaptive engine that would interpret dynamic, dangerous situations, Polaris Alpha said Tuesday.
â€œWe will be using advanced analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence to quickly process enormous amounts of information,â€ said Mark Gerken, chief scientist at Polaris Alpha’s Multi-Domain Operations Directorate.
Polaris Alpha will draw from previousÂ research and development projects involving abductive reasoning.
Work will take place at facilities of Polaris Alpha, Analytics and Machine Intelligence Division inÂ Colorado Springs, Colo.
