ECOLE: Environment-driven Conceptual Learning

Project Lead:  Dr. William Corvey                                                            

Sponsoring Organization:  DARPA


Project Synopsis:  DOD and the Intelligence Community need computational systems that can robustly and automatically analyze large amounts of multimodal data. Furthermore, these computational systems need to be able to communicate and cooperate with human beings to resolve ambiguities and improve performance over time. ECOLE will create artificial intelligence agents capable of continually learning from language and vision to enable human-machine collaborative analysis of image, video, and multimedia documents during time-sensitive, mission-critical DOD analytic tasks, where reliability and robustness are essential.
