IARPA to host Proposers’ Day for DIVA program
On June 3, the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity released information about an upcoming Proposers’ Day conference in support of the Deep Intermodal Video Analytics (DIVA) program (IARPA-BAA-16-13).
The Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) will host a Proposers’ Day Conference for the DIVA program on July 12, 2016, in anticipation of the release of a new Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) solicitation. The Conference will be held from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm EDT in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. The purpose of the conference will be to provide information on DIVA and the research problems the program aims to address, to address questions from potential proposers and to provide a forum for potential proposers to present their capabilities for teaming opportunities.
The DIVA program intends to develop robust automated activity detection for a multi-camera streaming video environment. As an essential aspect of DIVA, activities will be enriched by person and object detection, as well as recognition at multiple levels of granularity. DIVA is anticipated to be a three-phase program. The program will focus on three major thrusts throughout all phases to include:
Thrust 1: Detection of primitive activities occurring in ground-based video collection;
Thrust 2: Detection of complex activities, including pre-specified or newly defined activities;
Thrust 3: Person and object detection and recognition across multiple overlapping and non-overlapping camera viewpoints.
