The RIM4S Team Receives a $500,000 Contract from IARPA
The Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) has awarded a $500,000 contract to an Electrical Engineering UCLA team for the project titled "Reliable Inference with Missing, Masked, Malfunctioning or Masked Sensors (RIM4S)". This project is a collaboration among Electrical Engineering Professors Lara Dolecek (principal investigator), Danijela Cabric, Greg Pottie and Mani Srivastava. The project aims to develop a fundamentally new theoretical framework of reliable inference when the data is collected from disparate sensing devices and to demonstrate practical feasibility of the proposed unifying framework on a comprehensive and diverse set of applications.
IARPA is a government organization that invests in high-risk, high-payoff research programs that have the potential to provide the United States with an overwhelming intelligence advantage over future adversaries.
