The DARPA Automating Scientific Knowledge Extraction and Modeling (ASKEM) program is kicking off this week. ASKEM’s overall goal is to develop tools for agile creation and maintenance of complex models and simulators, to support decision making in diverse mission and scientific domains.
Eran is a Principal Investigator for ASKEM, as part of the Causal Inference Engine for Multiscale Simulations (CIEMSS) team. CIEMSS is developing software tools for answering prognostic and diagnostic questions about complex multi-scale/multi-model scenarios. This includes a simulation-based inference engine that converts models into probabilistic programs in order to answer causal queries, and multi-fidelity inference algorithms for running ensembles of models at different levels of fidelity.
