In the FY16 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), Congress established two Middle Tier of Acquisition (MTA) Pathways to streamline the requirements, budget, and acquisition processes to provide technologies faster to meet emerging military needs. Rapid Prototyping focuses on using innovative technology to rapidly develop fieldable prototypes within 5 years.
Dr. Philip Barry is the Technical Director for Modeling, Simulation, Experiments, & Analysis here at MITRE. When he’s not leading simulations work, he is teaching Risk Management at George Mason. Ever focused on bringing new tools and methodologies into the classroom, Dr. Barry partnered with George Mason and Joe Garner and Ali Zaidi from MITRE’s Generation AI Nexus (Gen AI) team, to create a first-of-its-kind lesson blending risk management with artificial intelligence (AI).
Ali Zaidi is a MITRE data scientist tackling an interesting challenge for MITRE as part of his work for Generation AI Nexus. As the fields of machine learning and data science have grown, the need for machine learning education has become a necessity of many fields few would associate with computer science.
Terkadang dalam hidup, perlu mengubah kecepatan dan keadaan pikiran, translates from Indonesian to sometimes in life, you need to change your speed and state of mind.
This article identifies veterans navigating the process of transitioning to civilian employment in an attempt to highlight the struggles and benefits of being a veteran in the civilian workforce.
When one imagines the next source of emerging technologies that could serve MITRE and our government partners, the music and film industries are hardly the first ones that come to mind. However, with the surge of innovation happening outside of government walls, new ideas and emerging technologies can come from anywhere.
Anyone with experience facing an important challenge or project understands that the job is easier when you have the right tools. The Innovation Toolkit (ITK) is a collection of methods and techniques curated by MITRE experts to help teams be more innovative.
Tammy Freeman is a Business Process Innovation consultant at MITRE. Her work focuses on bringing novel solutions to MITRE sponsors by helping them redefine how they understand Innovation.
A few days ago, I was taking an exercise class at the gym. The highly motivational instructor often tells the class, “Your goal tonight is to fail! If you get to the point that you can’t do the exercise or lift your weight, then you have achieved your goal of muscle failure!” It got me thinking…
Jesse Buonanno, a Cyber Security Engineer at MITRE, focuses on cyber operations. Jesse spends his spare time learning about blockchain and cryptocurrencies.
What child can resist the challenge of building a tiny robot (or “bot”) using the head of a toothbrush, a button battery, and a pager motor?
Have you experienced a slow sinking sensation when it comes to keeping your IT systems current, operational, and relevant? Do you feel that you are being asked to do more and more with less and less?
Congratulations! You’ve built your self-driving car! Now what? Take it out for a spin on that cross-country trip, watching movies and the landscape as you go from sea to shining sea?
So you’ve heard about Symphony™ – MITRE’s automated provisioning framework that rapidly builds secure analytic cells for geospatial, AI, and machine learning applications. Have you tried explaining it to a college student?
Welcome to the second installment of the Knowledge-Driven Podcast. In this series, Software Systems Engineer Cameron Boozarjomehri interviews technical leaders at MITRE who have made knowledge sharing and collaboration an integral part of their practice.
Clinical diagnostic support. Loan approval. Predictive policing and parole. These are all examples of consequential systems, meaning that they are systems with immediate, long-term, impactful consequences on people within them.
Welcome to the first installment of the Knowledge-Driven Podcast. In this new series, Software Systems Engineer Cameron Boozarjomehri interviews technical leaders at MITRE who have made knowledge sharing and collaboration an integral part of their practice.
Science is “the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the physical and natural world through observation and experimentation.” Since its emergence during the late renaissance, scientific progress has been made primarily through the aptly named scientific method.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is getting better all the time. You can see it all around you, from Alexa and Siri keeping your appointments and shopping lists, to news articles about self-driving cars, to a program called AlphaZero (Silver et al., 2018) that will probably never lose to any human in chess or GO.
How do we prepare for the inevitable change in the world today? How do we take into account not just the way the world is now – but the way it looks in the future?
