DARPA Award: Lifelong Learning Machines


Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency

In a collaboration with the labs of Constantine Dovrolis (P.I., Georgia Tech), Zsolt Kira (Co-P.I., Georgia Tech), and Astrid Prinz (co-P.I., Emory Univ), we have been awarded a DARPA grant to design machines that are inspired by neuroscience investigations.  This project will a) elucidate major biological mechanisms that enable lifelong-learning and adaptation in the brain, b) examine how to transform these mechanisms from the biological to the computational domain, and (c) use the information gained from the computational domain to guide deeper investigations into the biological underpinnings.
