The Promise of Deep Learning on Graphs

The Promise of Deep Learning on Graphs

A growing number of Department of Defense (DoD) data problems are graph problems: the data from sources such as sensor feeds, web traffic, and supply chains are full of irregular relationships that require graphs to represent explicitly and mathematically. For example, modern test and evaluation produces massive, heterogeneous datasets, and analysts can use graphs to reveal otherwise hidden patterns in these data, affording the DoD a far more complete understanding of a system's effectiveness, survivability,...

Billions of dollars in venture capital, industry investments, and government investments are going into the technology known as blockchain. It is being investigated in domains as diverse as finance, healthcare, defense, and communications. As blockchain technology has become more popular, programming-language security issues have emerged that pose a risk to the adoption of cryptocurrencies and other blockchain applications. In this post, I describe a new programming language, Obsidian, which we at the SEI are developing...

For many DoD missions, our ability to collect information has outpaced our ability to analyze that information. Graph algorithms and large-scale machine learning algorithms are a key to analyzing the information agencies collect. They are also an increasingly important component of intelligence analysis, autonomous systems, cyber intelligence and security, logistics optimization, and more. In this blog post, we describe research to develop automated code generation for future-compatible graph libraries: building blocks of high-performance code that...
