Generative AI/ML Models for Math, Algorithms, and Signal Processing (MASP) RFI

March 05, 2024

The Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) seeks information regarding innovative approaches to generative artificial intelligence (AI) or machine learning (ML) models to achieve a revolutionary leap in applications of science and engineering by generating smaller evolutionary products of math, algorithms, or signal processing (MASP). While significant progress has been made for generators of text, image, and audio (TIA) modalities, AI/ML generators for more complex sciences, including the MASP modalities, have not received the same attention. It is important to note this RFI is not for AI/ML solutions that perform such calculations of math, algorithms, or signal processing; rather, this RFI is looking for AI/ML solutions that create math, algorithms, or signal processing products themselves at the output of the generator. The envisioned models and systems could enable exponential advances in scientific and engineering fields as the AI/ML generates many small evolutionary products, unfettered from delays in human creativity, to quickly accumulate into generational discoveries.

This RFI seeks understanding of innovative systems consisting of MASP input and output modalities for generative AI/ML frameworks. These systems, when fully realized, should have the opportunity to create marginal advances to MASP problems by generating novel MASP products. These marginal improvements, fed back into future machine iterations, in a positive feedback fashion, may provide generational improvements in some science and engineering fields.
