Beavercreek, Ohio – Recently Parallax Advanced Research has been awarded a $4.4 million research and development contract for the Strategic Chaos Engine for Planning, Tactics, Experimentation and Resiliency (SCEPTER) program by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).  DARPA’s SCEPTER program  seeks to develop analytic engines that will produce machine-generated strategies, capable of competing with humans in various planning requirements at a very rapid pace.  

Dr. Van Parunak, senior research scientist at Parallax Advanced Research, is at the helm of Parallax’s research efforts for SCEPTER.  “The heart of the Parallax offering is the Social Causality with Agents using Multiple Perspectives (SCAMP) simulator that we are enhancing to satisfy the needs of the SCEPTER Program,” said Dr. Parunak.
