DARPA offering $2 million to anyone who can build Skynet software

24 sec read

Call it what it is. DARPA’s grand challenge to programmer is to build self-healing cyber-security software. If you think about it, self-awareness and the ability to protect itself is essentially what Skynet in the Terminator movie series was all about. This may not end well.

Software, heal thyself.

The mad scientist wing of the Pentagon known as the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency announced Tuesday that it’s planning to hold a new “Grand Challenge” competition with a $2 million prize. The goal of that seven-figure bakeoff: To build a “fully automated cyber defense system” that protects itself from hackers, responding to attacks and even updating its own code in real-time, without the assistance of humans.
