DARPA has been mostly focusing on making new things, pushing the boundary of what is possible to build. Case in point: This new challenge it issued to hackers. The challenge aims to solve a persistent problem in computer systems. Flaws in software often go unnoticed for around 312 days, time which can be exploited by hackers. And then once those flaws are noticed by a human, they still need to be understood, patched, and then released out to the broader community.
