SRI International has been selected by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to develop a machine learning system for artificial intelligence. The contract will be supported under DARPA’s Lifelong Learning Machines (L2M) Program.

The research is focused on understanding and applying biological memory transfers to new AI algorithms that can fundamentally improve their performance throughout their fielded lifetime experience, says Sek Chai, technical director in the Center for Vision Technologies, SRI International.

As part of the L2M program, SRI researchers will develop AI algorithms based on biological mechanisms in memory consolidation and replay.
