#FundingFriday Research proposals are sought for the Quantum Information Sciences program, managed by Dr. Grace Metcalfe. This program encompasses fundamental experimental and theoretical research in the field of Quantum Information Science (QIS). The primary focus is on understanding, controlling, and exploiting non-classical phenomena for developing novel capabilities for the +United States Air Force beyond those possible with classical systems in the areas including, but not limited to, quantum networks, and complex materials.

Should autonomous systems be in some sense social? Should they be like people? Professor Jonathan Gratch at the +University of Southern California studies the cognitive mechanisms by which we view a machine as a person. #AFOSRTrustandInfluence #BasicResearch #AI #MachineIntelligence

Urmila Mahadev, a theoretical computer science grad student at +UC Berkeley, has solved a fundamental quantum computing problem— how do you know whether a quantum computer has followed your instructions or done anything quantum at all?

The work was supported, in part, by an AFOSR MURI project (PO: Dr. Tristan Nguyen). #BasicResearch #QuantumComputing #AFOSRMURI #Quantum

The +University of Notre Dame has developed the country's largest quiet Mach 6 hypersonic wind tunnel.

"This tunnel’s combination of low noise and large size enables previously impossible experiments to be carried out" - Professor Thomas Juliano

The project was supported, in part, by AFRL/AFOSR, Program Officer: Dr. Ivett Leyva, High-Speed Aerodynamics. #AFOSRDURIP #Hypersonics

#FundingFriday Our BAA now includes a new research funding portfolio in Cognitive and Computational Neuroscience! The program, managed by Dr. Hal Greenwald, funds high-risk, high-potential basic research that uses experimental and computational modeling techniques from systems neuroscience, cognitive neuroscience, computational/theoretical neuroscience, cognitive science, and cognitive psychology to understand the neural mechanisms responsible for perception, cognition, and behavior. The program also supports brain-inspired algorithm and hardware development provided these are useful for testing proposed neuroscience theories and/or enabling novel capabilities in computing, artificial intelligence, or autonomous systems.
