The Defense Department and Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency want to develop new technology in support of the Pentagon’s Third Offset Strategy with a central theme on autonomous artificial intelligence that operate real-world robots and in cyberspace, Breaking Defense reported Monday.
Sydney Freedberg writes William Roper, Strategic Capabilities Office director, said the SCO has continued to explore new concepts that could be of use to the U.S. military
“The big data tools… are in beta testing today and I think will be ready for prime time within a year,” said Roper in an interview with Breaking Defense.
“I’m really impressed with a lot of the technologies that those groups are working on, but it does take time to get them out to the field,” he added.
The report added that SCO has worked on 23 projects that took an average of three years from initiation to completion and will continue to push for new concepts such as robot boats, big data, and augmented reality.
