Big data DARPA scientists are crafting algorithms and analytical systems to sift through video intelligence, track the spread of ideas on social media and “quickly identify anomalous threat-related behaviors of systems, individuals and groups.” “Building trust into information systems” Passwords can no longer cut it. DARPA promises new user authentication technologies, mathematically “unhackable” embedded devices and other tools to “protect the integrity of data.” Unmanned aerial systems DARPA has been investing in drones since the 1960s. Missile-launcher and pizza-sized reconnaissance platforms are already realities; nano-drone swarms and cargo-toting craft are on the drawing board. Artificial intelligence AI has been put to work on everything from speech recognition to driverless navigation to tactical decision-making. Automated cyber defense, integration of scientific research on a massive scale and even the building of still-better machine-learning applications are now being enabled by DARPA- driven AI research. BackStory The future according to DARPA 34 April 30, 2015 FCW.COM The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency exists to peek over the horizon and pioneer breakthrough technologies. Here’s what the agency sees coming in IT: Source: DARPA’s “Breakthrough Technologies for National Security” report, March 2015 Spectrum As increasingly powerful technologies have become commercially available, DARPA is developing new algorithms to identify and counter enemy radar in real time, as well as “fully configurable RF systems” to better share precious spectrum. GPS navigation Global Positioning System satellites are a signature DARPA innovation, but those same satellites have become a critical vulnerability. The agency is developing new distributed navigation systems that can function satellite-free. 0430fcw_034.indd 34 4/7/15 1:50 PM
