Carnegie Mellon University and Lockheed Martin have expanded their partnership with the signing of a new master research agreement.

Lockheed Martin and its Sikorsky subsidiary have been involved in CMU research other collaborations for more than three decades, and the new agreement is expected to pave the way for more projects focused on artificial intelligence.

“This new master research agreement will help us expand and accelerate collaborations between our organizations on a range of important research topics,” said Michael McQuade, CMU’s vice president for research. “We are especially pleased that Lockheed Martin is joining our CMU AI ecosystem, advancing a technology that will be critical for our nation’s welfare.”

In one new project, Lockheed will support work at CMU on how AI can improve decision-making in settings such as humanitarian assistance and disaster relief. The research is focusing on enhancing coordination among numerous individuals or groups in these settings when not all involved parties are fully cooperative or have access to the same information.

“Lockheed Martin is making significant investments in AI, so expanding our research partnership with CMU was a natural next step that will help us to continue accelerating the pace of innovation and create next-generation and generation-after-next technologies,” said Robie I. Samanta Roy, the company’s vice president for technology strategy and innovation.
