DARPA’s latest grand challenge takes on the radio spectrum

One of the most hotly contested bits of real estate today is one you can’t see. As we move into an increasingly wireless-connected world, staking out a piece of the crowded electromagnetic spectrum becomes more important. DARPA is hoping to help solve this issue with its latest Grand Challenge, which calls for the use of machine-learning technologies to enable devices to share bandwidth. The Spectrum Collaboration Challenge (SC2) is aimed at alleviating an ongoing technological headache. Ever since the invention of radio, it’s been recognized that there is only so much of the electromagnetic spectrum to go around, so government regulations were imposed to allocate bandwidth. Early broadcast technology was fairly crude and radio and television services, for example, were given whole regions of the spectrum that today seem like…
