DARPA: Superior AI
Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency
The goal of the project is to substantially advance the state of the art in artificial intelligence and, as a major necessity of achieving this goal, increase our understanding of the mechanisms that underlie biological intelligence. We will avoid methods and systems that may appear intelligent, but are, in fact, hard coded and not intelligent. Many current systems give the appearance of intelligence, however, these systems cannot adapt to changing circumstances or truly interpret and make decisions based on input. Systems that can do these things represent the future of computer technology.
The project consists of four primary tasks with the underlying goal to build superior AI:
