Unlocking the Potential of Generative Artificial Intelligence: IARPA’s Search for Innovative Solutions

IARPA Seeking AI to Break New Ground in Science & Engineering

The Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) is currently seeking public input to assess the potential development of a generative artificial intelligence model. This model, once trained on relevant data, would be capable of generating innovative products based on prompts that advance human knowledge in science and engineering. IARPA is specifically interested in generative AI models that can produce outputs in math, algorithm, or signal processing modalities, such as equations, algorithms, and waveforms.

However, it is important to note that IARPA is not looking for generative AI models that perform calculations, execute algorithms, or process signals. Instead, the agency is seeking AI models that can create new knowledge in MASP form, even if only making marginal advancements in complex sciences.

The Request for Information (RFI) for this project was posted on SAM.gov and responses are due by March 29th. Interested parties responding to the RFI are asked to address various issues such as how training datasets can be obtained, how prompting mechanisms would function and how an AI model’s performance could be evaluated.

Federal leaders and industry experts will discuss the transformative power of artificial intelligence at the Potomac Officers Club’s 5th Annual Artificial Intelligence Summit on March 21st. Interested individuals can register for the event now to participate in these important conversations.
