A Defense Department project that aims to leverage machine learning to determine and classify objects in images derived from drones has seen its funding rise to $93.1M in the fiscal 2019 defense spending measure, Sludge reported Wednesday.

That figure reflects a 580 percent increase from $16M in funds Congress authorized for Project Maven in the Pentagon’s FY 2018 National Defense Authorization Act.

President Donald Trump signed on Aug. 13 the NDAA that would authorize $717B in FY 2019 defense budget.

Project Maven is a public-private partnership that aims to integrate commercial artificial intelligence into current programs of records, according to the budget request.
