Agencies are turning to innovation challenges as a way to solve problems and get people from outside the government involved in coming up with solutions. The White House launched Challenge.gov Tuesday and 15 agencies already are using the platform to hold contests. DoD has four challenges on the platform looking at a variety of issues.
DARPA is one agency that recognizes cyber threats are just as likely to come from within the network. The agency has posted a solicitation on Fed Biz Ops looking for what they call novel approaches to insider threat detection. The Defense Advanced Research Agency is looking for a way to increase the accuracy, rate and speed of detection. The Cyber Insider Threat (CINDER) program will stop adversaries from operating within government and military networks before they can get access.
One government agency is attempting to re-invent computing. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency - or DARPA - has started the Ubiquitous High Performance Computing program to create a revolutionary new generation of computing systems they hope will overcome limits to the way computers are evolving now. Increasing the performance of computers has been driven by - what's been dubbed - Moore's Law, the doubling of transistors that can be placed on an integrated circuit every two years. But, gains in performance will be limited by significantly greater power consumption, and programming complexity issues. The DARPA program will work to develop radically new computer architectures and programming models that are 100 to 1,000 times more energy efficient. The program directly addresses major priorities expressed by the President's "Strategy for American Innovation".
You may have seen or heard about the movie Transformers and the military theme in the movie. It may soon be more than a movie. For several years now the Pentagon has been looking into flying cars. Now they're working on a flying humvee. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has chosen two companies to participate in project Transformer. It's a fully automated four-person vehicle that can drive like a car and then take off and fly like an aircraft to avoid roadside bombs. Lockheed Martin and AAI Corp., a unit of Textron Systems are moving to the next stage.
DARPA sets out to eliminate internal cyber threats
DARPA has developed a set of privacy principles.
Can a thousand people working together design a product better than one person, or a small group of people, could?
NIST scientists are currently testing smart phone-based technology to translate information between English and key languages that are short on human translators.
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is looking for a few good computer science researchers.
A man readily acknowledged by many as "the father of the Internet" says the "network of networks" originally bore little in common with the network we know today. And he says the Federal government, through its top Pentagon research arm, had a big hand in the development of the Internet.
New arm of the Department of Energy hopes to be what DARPA is for DoD.
