DARPA wants algorithms that filter text for intel analysis

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is asking potential industry partners to assist it in developing and refining computer algorithms and computer systems to help intelligence analysts pull so-called actionable information out of large amounts of text, according to a notice posted on FedBizOpps.

According to a May 22 broad agency announcement, the agency's Deep Exploration and Filtering of Text program calls for the development of algorithmic capabilities to do the following:

  • See through language to meaning in text.
  • Make use of key information contained in text documents.
  • Cue up information sources that contain new developments for analysts.
  • Automate the initial stages of report writing.

Proposals are due by July 10.
