To meet the challenge of certain critical problems in defense, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency DARPA has initiated an important new program in Strategic Computing. By seizing an opportunity to leverage recent advances in artificial intelligence, computer science, and microelectronics, the Agency plans to create a new generation of machine intelligence technology. This new technology will have unprecedented capabilities and promises to greatly increase our national security and our economic strength as it emerges during the coming decade. Within the past few years, important advances have occurred in many separated areas of artificial intelligence, computer science, and microelectronics. Advances in expert system technology now enable the mechanization of the practical knowledge and the reasoning methods of human experts in many fields. Advances in machine vision, speech, and machine understanding of natural language provide easy ways for humans to interact with computers. New methods of microsystem design and implementation enable the rapid transfer of new architectural concepts into state-of-the-art microelectronics.
