The U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is launching a huge expansion of its Electronics Resurgence Initiative, boosting the program to US $1.5 billion over five years.
DARPA’s ERI director Bill Chappell spoke to IEEE Spectrum ahead of the conference about the initiative’s aims and potential impacts.
