Abstract:

The DARPA SLS Program is developing a technology that has been justified, at least in part, by its potential relevance to military applications. In an effort to demonstrate the relevance of SIS technology to real-world military applications, BBN has undertaken the task of providing a spoken language interface to DART, a system for military logistical transportation planning. We discuss the transportation planning process, describe the real-world DART system, identify parts of the system where spoken language can facilitate planning, and describe BBNs work towards porting the HARC SIS system to the DART domain. THE DART SYSTEM BBN is currently involved in an effort to improve the transportation process using non-speech technology. The DART Dynamic Analysis and Replanning Tool project 1 , is demonstrating the operational impact of AI planning and scheduling technology on transportation planning at USTRANSCOM. DART addresses an urgent need for fast and accurate plan generation and evaluation to support both long-range, hypothetical planning and planning in such crisis-response
