DARPA's newest solicitation is LOCO (Location and Connectivity Aware Content Pushing):
The vision of the LOCO program is to provide information to commanders before they need it by anticipating their needs. Current systems (e.g., file caches, peer-to-peer networks or Akamai-like systems) watch what users request and react by either moving data or shifting users to other data stores. These techniques neither move the data beforehand nor work efficiently in bandwidth constrained military environments. Proposer's Day: February 27 in Arlington.
O'Reilly Radar connects this with Jeff Hawkins notion of the brain as a predictive engine.
