The i-DS Research Network is an initiative under the Next Generation Technologies Fund that seeks to engage academia, industry and other government research agencies in research activities in Human and Artificial Intelligence Interaction and Distributed Multi-Domain Networks.

Human and Artificial Intelligence Interaction

Decision superiority enables us to make better decisions faster than an adversary. Automation is imperative to help analysts, commanders and warfighters deal with the overwhelming volume, velocity, variety and uncertain veracity of available information.

Research proposals are sought in the area of human-artificial intelligence interaction, with a focus on:

  • Design of AI systems to collaborate with human decision makes in high risk, time critical environments;
  • Design of exploratory AI systems for interactive sense-making; and
  • Design of distributed human and AI teams.

Proposals that improve existing ways of working, or identify entirely new functionality are both encouraged.

The call for proposals closes at 1630 AEDT on Tuesday 3 December 2019.

Distributed Multi-Domain Networks

To effectively and efficiently process and integrate the information, and support real-time or near real-time decision superiority, it is expected that the information integration architectures will need to be distributed, resilient and agile.

Research proposals are sought in the area of distributed multi-domain information networks, with a focus on the following sub-themes:

  • Self-aware software systems;
  • Self-integrating software systems;
  • Distributed edge-hosting and processing; and
  • Distributed applications over programmable networks.

The call for proposals closes at 1630 AEDT on Tuesday 3 December 2019.
