Carnegie Mellon University, specifically its Combat Capabilities Development Command Army Research Laboratory (ARL), is being awarded $72 million from the U.S. Army over five years for fundamental (publishable) artificial intelligence research. Researchers will focus on accelerating the research and development of Advanced Algorithms, Autonomy and Artificial Intelligence (A4I) capabilities that could enhance mission effectiveness for the Army and across the Department of Defense.

  • Carnegie Mellon will lead a consortium of universities that will work in collaboration with ARL to accelerate research and development.

  • The cooperative agreement supports fundamental (publishable) AI research and the increased integration of autonomy and robotics as part of highly effective human-machine teams.

  • Through this work, researchers expect to achieve automated sense making, or the ability for AI to recognize scenes and generate real-time, actionable correlations, insights and information for humans.
