Carnegie Mellon University and the corporate lab producing research for the U.S. Army have entered into a $72 million cooperative agreement to accelerate research and development of artificial intelligence technologies.
Over the next five years, CMU will lead a group of universities that will work in collaboration with the Combat Capabilities Development Command Army Research Laboratory to create advanced algorithms, autonomy and AI to support national security and defense.
“Tackling difficult science and technology challenges is rarely done alone and there is no greater challenge facing the army than artificial intelligence,” Philip Perconti, director of the Army Research Laboratory, said in a prepared statement.
“The Army is looking forward to making great advances in AI research to ensure readiness today and to enhance the army’s modernization priorities for the future,” he said. more
