IARPA to host Video LINCS Proposers’ Day
On January 4, the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) announced the Proposers’ Day for the Video Linking and Intelligence from Non-Collaborative Sensors (Video LINCS) program. Registration closes at 12:00 p.m. Eastern on February 1.
The IARPA Video LINCS Proposers’ Day meeting will be held on Wednesday, February 7, 2024, from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. EST in Linthicum, MD, to introduce the Video LINCS program to potential proposers and to provide information on technical requirements and program objectives. A virtual attendance option will also be available.
The Video LINCS program aims to develop novel capabilities to autonomously re-identify objects across diverse video sensor collections and map all objects to a common reference frame. Re-identification (reID) is the process of matching the same object across a video collection, to determine where the object appears throughout the video.
IARPA seeks technical approaches that will facilitate autonomous reID in an open-world setting where there is no advance knowledge of the sensors, scene, content or video collection geometries. ReID technologies will initially be developed for specific object classes that are known in advance, such as people and vehicles, and ultimately extent to all objects in the video footage without advance knowledge of specific object types. The capability to autonomously remap object locations from individual camera reference frames to a single common reference frame will also be developed.
Participants must register by Thursday, February 1, 2024, at noon EST. Same day registrations will not be accepted. Limited spots are available for in-person attendance and early registration is encouraged. Only two attendees per organization or research group will be permitted to attend in person.
