At the time of this interview, Dr. Hoffmann was manager of the Autonomous Intelligence Department within the Information and Systems Sciences Laboratory of HRL Laboratories, known here as ISSL.
HRL Laboratories has launched Artificial Intelligence Opponents for Contested Space, a project to create an AI program to help train operators who may be required to control and monitor craft in future contested outer space operations.
HRL Laboratories have successfully demonstrated their NEMESIS program (NEurMorphic EyeS In the Sky), a revolutionary drone-based system to analyze situational awareness and provide actionable intelligence in real time. NEMESIS is a bioinspired system of fast, accurate video processing that emulates human vision. With NEMESIS, small drones can extract, recognize and track human movement, behaviors, and overall scenes from multi-modal sensor data, providing high-quality tactical decisions and actionable intelligence to warfighters as action is happening.
HRL Computer scientists are working with the Office of Naval Research on the new software system that will provide Navy personnel with fast and explainable recommendations to aid command decision-making by reducing stress and mental workload, and increasing efficiency of logistics personnel.
HRL Laboratories, LLC, has launched an ambitious project to develop a machine learning system that leverages knowledge of a set of labeled data onto a new unlabeled data set the way a child can recognize a zebra while only having ever seen a horse, but being told that zebras look like striped horses.
Current HRL scientists Mike Daily and Dave Payton are pioneers in modern robotics, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and autonomy to name just a few of their areas of expertise.
HRL Laboratories, LLC, with The Boeing Company has been awarded a new project to develop an artificial intelligence (AI) decision-making engine for multi-agent military problems such as multi-domain wargaming and strategic battle management.
A new program being developed by computer scientists at HRL Laboratories, LLC, is a cyber-defense system that will exploit a social engineering attacker’s methods by drawing them in with automated responses to their behavior.
HRL Laboratories, LLC, joins DARPA’s Lifelong Learning Machines (L2M) program to develop a breakthrough in machine-learning architectures for autonomous systems that will continually improve performance and update their knowledge based on experience, without human supervision.
HRL has received an award from the NGA through a competitive bid under their BIG program to research artificial intelligence capabilities, specifically the SLICK-AVA project.
