U.S. military deploys neural network technology
WASHINGTON — Neural network technology is advancing on several fronts, especially in military applications where planners are trying to use it to link networks of smart sensors into a web of cheap, ubiquitous detectors.
Most of the current action in deploying brain-emulating neural networks focuses on a handful of sensor programs sponsored by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (Darpa), which funded much of the early work on neural networks. Jasper Lupo, the Pentagon's chief scientist and a pioneering researcher in the field, said Sunday (July 15) at the International Neural Networks Society conference here that the agency is seeking industry and academic proposals for new approaches to developing large sensor arrays based on the technology.
One solicitation seeks new mathematical ideas for large sensor arrays and related communications links. The second focuses on "multimodal, multidimensional sensor methods." Both are geared to developing what Lupo called "a global nervous system" made up of networked sensor arrays covering everything from handheld forward-looking IR to chemical sensors.
"Every object on the battlefield can be a sensor platform, even a human being," Lupo said. Besides wearable sensors, he said Pentagon planners could install chemical and other detectors on a fence post or a traffic light.
Darpa's Smart Sensor Web program seeks to use neural network technology to deploy large arrays of small sensors, each costing no more than $300 a piece. It is also seeking to use microelectromechanical systems for a "smart dust" program that would release tiny sensors into the wind.
The approach is fundamentally different from the DOD's traditional approach of packing platforms with huge, costly, standalone sensors
