Scientific Feasibility (SciFy)

ID: HR001124S0013 • Type: Posted

Description

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is soliciting innovative and revolutionary computational approaches that measure the feasibility of technical claims to enable accurate assessments of scientific content.
Background
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is soliciting innovative proposals to develop computational methods that measure the feasibility of claims in order to enable accurate assessments of scientific content. The program aims to demonstrate that the scientific feasibility of claims can be determined by using automated reasoning to decompose claims into constituent, verifiable parts.

Grant Details
The program will be structured into two technical areas: (1) feasibility assessment, and (2) test and evaluation. Feasibility assessment involves claim decomposition to create reasoning chains and evaluation of those chains.
Test and Evaluation focuses on producing gold standard datasets of labelled content for use in technical evaluations. The program is a 32-month, one phase program, consisting of three technical sprints defined by the scientific domain of concentration. The Government has identified program metrics for evaluating the effectiveness of proposed solutions in achieving the stated program objectives.

Eligibility Requirements
All responsible sources capable of satisfying the Government's needs may submit a proposal that shall be considered by DARPA. Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Small Businesses, Small Disadvantaged Businesses and Minority Institutions are encouraged to submit proposals. Federally Funded Research and Development Centers (FFRDCs) and Government Entities are subject to applicable direct competition limitations and must demonstrate eligibility to propose to Government solicitations and compete with industry.

Period of Performance
The first domain evaluation is at month 12, the second at month 22, and the third at month 32.

Grant Value
Multiple awards are anticipated with the amount of resources made available under this BAA depending on the quality of the proposals received and the availability of funds.
