Extramural Funding Opportunities

Solicitation Open for Intelligent Cognitive Assistants Proposals
Deadline: June 4, 2018

Program Overview
Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC) is soliciting proposals in the area of Intelligent Cognitive Assistants (ICA).  The ICA program will provide supplemental funding* to the Future of Work at the Human-Technology Frontier: Advancing Cognitive and Physical Capabilities (FW-HTF) program offered by the National Science Foundation.  At the bottom of this page is a description of the goals for this program and the research topics of interest.

After becoming familiar with the description of desired research, if you wish to submit a proposal, first submit your proposal to NSF, and then follow these steps to submit the same proposal to SRC. In summary:

  1. Submit your proposal to NSF, and save the PDF file that you receive from NSF FastLane. (letter of intent due to NSF by April 16 and full proposal is due by June 4, 2018)
  2. Obtain a proposal ID from SRC (this will be different from the NSF proposal ID).
  3. Generate a cover page for your proposal.
  4. Prepare your proposal by creating a PDF file with the signed SRC proposal cover page incorporated with the NSF proposal as submitted.
  5. Upload your completed SRC proposal PDF

Research Overview

The program goals, future applications, and research space for the Intelligent Cognitive Assistant (ICA) initiative are vast, from production to social life.  Enhancing human physico-cognitive capabilities, while respecting social, ethical and legal concerns, is a main goal.  The ICA program is focused on creating the foundations for holistic artificial intelligence for supporting physical and cognitive human activities, creating modular ICA system architectures and devices enabling scalability and adaptability, and improving the human-intelligent machine interface. This will be achieved with a wide range of domain expertise and should revolve around the common themes from the ICA workshop. The detailed research needs can be found in the ICA workshop report.
https://www.src.org/program/ica/research-needs/ica-research-needs-20180207.pdf

 Research Themes

  1. Contextual knowledge: Contextual knowledge is the key to aggregating the ever-growing volume of stimuli and limiting feedback to the user. Contextual knowledge is also temporal meaning context can change quickly over time. Need to develop a common ‘world model’ of knowledge.
  2. Holistic AI: Cognitive AI must have a combination of long-term, machine learning and fast, one-shot learning. Future “Holistic AI” systems will combine different reasoning and learning methods with end-to-end intelligence.
  3. Social Science: Humans are complex, emotional, and dynamic; any future Intelligent Agent will need to be adaptable to a given user. Enhancing human physico-cognitive capabilities, while respecting social, ethical and legal concerns, is a main goal.
  4. Natural Human-ICA Interaction: Future human-computer interaction needs to be seamless, comfortable, empathic, trustworthy, and transparent. New paradigms are need beyond screen and keyboards. Humans should be able to query and modify future Intelligent Agents.
  5. Edge Processing: Future Intelligent Agents will need to do much more locally, which requires significant improvements in low power, edge processing. New computing architectures will be needed. User context and knowledge will need to stay local to ensure privacy concerns.

(*) Contingent of sufficient interest of the proposed research suitable to SRC membership agreements

For more information regarding the funding opportunity please contact Leslie Faiers at 1 (919) 941-9455.

The USA Science & Engineering Festival Expo is Highlighting UU Research

The U has two exhibits of faculty research at the 5th USA Science & Engineering Festival Expo to be held in Washington D.C April 7-8, 2018. The Expo is for teens, children, and families who want to inspire their curious minds and see where “STEM Can Take You”.  The event has been described as educational and entertaining as it provides information on careers in the STEM fields.

NSF has a pavilion at the Festival which includes the exhibits “Air Quality Sensors and Citizen Scientists” and the “Singing Red Rock Arches of Utah”.  Kerry Kelly and Anthony Butterfield from the Department of Chemical Engineering and their colleagues have developed low-cost, air quality sensors and introduced them to high-school and middle school students along the Wasatch Front. At the exhibit they will be teaching attendees how to build and use the sensors. The aim is to bring citizen scientists into the research process to help them understand not only the research process, but the challenges in addressing air quality. For additional information see AIRU.

The second U exhibit, “Singing Red Rock Arches of Utah” is the research of Jeffery Moore, Michael Thorne and their students from the Department of Geology & Geophysics. Their work involves recording and analyzing the extremely small vibrations of the red rock formations found in Utah. The vibrations produce sound and when amplified can be detected by the human ear. The exhibit will introduce attendees to the red rock arches and allow them to hear them “singing”.  For additional information see Dynamics of Rock Arches and also Red Rock Tones.
