SAIC Awarded $13 Million Contract to Develop Word Recognition Technology

Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC) has won a contract worth $13 million to develop reading system technologies for the Defense Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory. The development of reading systems technology will allow machines to navigate through the massive amounts of text in the defense and intelligence communities.

SAIC will be designing and implementing a complete research framework to that will assist in the development of reading system technologies that will support the DARPA Reading Machine Program. DARPA’s program’s objective is to give machines the ability to recognize text and bridge the gap human analysis and the machine reasoning systems.

According to SAIC’s John Fratamico, SAIC’s senior vice president and business unit general manager , “The goal of the program is to create general purpose reading systems which can ingest, understand, and make inferences from the mountains of text that collectively encode vast stores of knowledge inaccessible to current technology.”
