Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-174
Budget: 05/31/06 - 05/22/08

Within our Phase I effort, a radically new kind of neural network based control system that broadly emulates the contemplative capacity of the human brain has been successfully tested aboard a complex hexapod robot. In the course of this preliminary investigation, this neurocontrol system was able to bootstrap its own locomotive behaviors on dem...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-174
Budget: 05/19/05 - 02/19/06

In previous investigations, we have crafted neural architectures for complex, hexapod robots that may invent clever walking strategies based upon absolutely no prior learning. Similarly, we have also shown that the same neural networks may devise variations on these locomotive strategies to propel themselves along unfamiliar surfaces. In this SB...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF03-148
Budget: 06/21/04 - 03/21/06

In Phase I, Imagination Engines, Inc. (IEI) has made revolutionary advances in the field of autonomous robotics by developing deliberative neural architectures capable of self-originating strategies in navigating and mapping virtual reality environments. Having overcome critical technical issues associated with two-way communication between thes...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF03-148
Budget: 06/11/03 - 03/11/04

Recent developments in the area of artificial neural networks have led to a totally new brand of machine intelligence that is capable of autonomously improvising and implementing cunning concepts and strategies. This revolutionary neural network technology, called the "Creativity Machine Paradigm," has led to a wide variety of clever, self-learn...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF98-190
Budget: 05/01/98 - 02/01/99

A recently patented connectionist paradigm, called the "Creativity Machine", is naturally suited to all process design problems, including those of thin film growth and removal. Trained by exposure to cumulative experimental data, this paradigm may autonomously compute processing routes toward specifically targeted end goals. In the case of th...
