CREATE: Context Reasoning for Autonomous Teaming

Project Lead:  Mr. Aaron Kofford                                                            

Sponsoring Organization:  DARPA


Project Synopsis:  CREATE will explore the utility of artificial intelligence (AI) in the autonomous formation of scalable machine-to-machine teams capable of reacting to and learning from unexpected missions in the absence of centralized communication and control. The program seeks to develop the theoretical foundations of autonomous AI teaming to enable a system of heterogeneous, contextually-aware agents to act in a decentralized manner and satisfy multiple, simultaneous and unplanned missions goals. CREATE will delve into the function and utility of encoding common knowledge (e.g., general places and things), procedural knowledge (e.g., user manuals and playbooks), and learned knowledge (evolving experiential, or semantically inferred information). To mitigate potential undesirable action while maintaining an interesting level of autonomy, the program will investigate the correct balance of hard-coded and contextual safeguards.
