Request for Information (RFI) - Cortical Computing Primitives and Connectomics
IARPA-RFI-13-05 OPEN Posted Date: July 29, 2013 Responses Due: September 30, 2013
The Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) is seeking information about the current state of the art in "executable" (i.e. instantiable) models of cortical computing primitives that are supported by known neuroanatomy, as well as strategies for advancing these models based on new and emerging techniques in connectomics. This information may be used to formulate a new program aimed at developing novel machine learning algorithms based on high fidelity representations of cortical microcircuits. The current request for information (RFI) is issued solely for information gathering and planning purposes and does not constitute a formal solicitation for proposals. The following sections of this RFI contain details of the scope of technical areas of interest, along with instructions for the submission of responses.
