DARPA Working On Understanding Implications In Language

The development of an automated solution may rely on contributions from the linguistics and computer science fields in the areas of artificial intelligence, computational linguistics, machine learning, natural-language understanding, discourse and dialogue analysis, and others.

“Overwhelmed by deadlines and the sheer volume of available foreign intelligence, analysts may miss crucial links, especially when meaning is deliberately concealed or otherwise obfuscated,” said Bonnie Dorr, DARPA program manager for DEFT. “DEFT is attempting to create technology to make reliable inferences based on basic text. We want the ability to mitigate ambiguity in text by stripping away filters that can cloud meaning and by rejecting false information. To be successful, the technology needs to look beyond what is explicitly expressed in text to infer what is actually meant.”

DEFT will build on existing DARPA programs and ongoing academic research into deep language understanding and artificial intelligence to address remaining capability gaps related to inference, causal relationships and anomaly detection. Link
