DARPA picks industry partner for SemaFor

24th July 2020 - 15:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


DARPA has enlisted industry support to defend against large-scale, automated disinformation attacks. 

The agency on 23 July awarded SRI International a $10.99 million contract under the SemaFor programme, to develop technologies that automatically detect, attribute and characterise falsified media assets (such as text messages, audio, images and video).

The contract was awarded after a competitive bidding process, in which DARPA received 37 offers.

Work will be performed in Menlo Park, California; Baltimore, Maryland; Buffalo, New York; and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, with an expected completion date of July 2024.
