SD2: Synergistic Discovery and Design

Project Lead:  Dr. Joshua Elliott                                                            

Sponsoring Organization:  DARPA


Project Synopsis:  SD2 will address the problem of design in domains that lack complete models. SD2 aims to develop data-driven methods to automatically discover models and refine designs in parallel and at scale. To ensure realism, the project will use challenge problems drawn from cutting-edge domains. By the end of the program, SD2 plans to provide new data-driven methods to accelerate discovery and design, and create a cloud-based, open data exchange for research communities in complex domains.
