DARPA Announces Spectrum Collaboration Challenge (SC2)

DARPA, a sponsor of TerraSwarm through STARnet, has announced the world’s first collaborative machine-intelligence competition, a grand challenge focused on spectrum collaboration.

With the number of devices accessing the electromagnetic spectrum on the rise, this challenge seeks to take advantage of progress and inspire innovation in the fields of artificial intelligence and machine learning. Competing teams will develop smart systems to create radios with machine-learning capabilities to cooperatively optimize the use of the wireless spectrum.

The Challenge addresses a fast-growing need. With an increasing number of devices connected to the wireless spectrum, a more nimble and efficient use of the finite resources will have applications in meeting future demand in ways not possible with the current system of pre-allocation of exclusive access to designated frequencies. The development of low cost software defined radios will also make it feasible to deploy spectrum monitoring on a larger scale.
