DARPA/ITO has issued BAA-98-12 soliciting proposals for
self-adaptive software that can evaluate and can modify its own
behavior. DARPA is looking for mission-based reasoning techniques
rather than neural networks or genetic algorithms. Applications
include automatic target recognition, signal processing,
planning/scheduling, and robotics. Runtime generation
of component interface code from specifications would be good.

NIST and the National Research Council (NRC) jointly offer
awards for postdoctoral research associateships by US citizens.
$45,500/year plus relocation, benefits, and $5,500 in travel
or research expenses. NIST divisions that support these
associateships are interested in AI for design and manufacture,
system interfaces, computational metrology, collaborative design,
etc. See and
