Report: DARPA Looks to Build ‘Big Code’ to Match ‘Big Data’

1 min read

DARPA logoThe Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency plans to launch a new program that seeks to better manage the explosion of data sets in an attempt to head off potential security issues from legacy systems and inadequate software, the Army Times reported Friday.

Ray Locker writes the Pentagon’s initiative, entitled Mining and Understanding Software Enclaves, will be designed to develop “big code” to match the military’s big data.

DARPA acknowledged in a special notice last week that the program is intended to simplify what has become increasingly complex software that control computers, systems and architectures.

“The goal of the MUSE program is to realize foundational advances in the way software is built, debugged, verified, maintained and understood,” the agency said in the document.

“Errors triggered during program execution can lead to potentially crippling security violations, unexpected runtime failure or unintended behavior,” it added.
