Project Title:

Integrating Humans, Machines and Networks: A Global Review of Data-to-Decision Technologies
PIN: PGA-PGA-12-01        

Major Unit:

Policy and Global Affairs

Sub Unit: Policy and Global Affairs

RSO: Wrightson, Patricia

Subject/Focus Area: Computers and Information Technology; Engineering and Technology; International Issues; National Security and Defense; Policy for Science and Technology

Project Scope
An ad hoc committee will conduct an analytical assessment of global research efforts in several technologies that enable humans, machines and computer systems to collaboratively digest, analyze and act on vast amounts of unstructured data in dynamic environments. This analytical assessment will include findings on (1) key research goals in several enabling sub-disciplines that support human-machine decisionmaking, (2) main impediments to achieving technological breakthroughs, (3) key systems-integration challenges, and (4) the scope and character of international approaches to these research areas. The sub-disciplines to be studied include, but may not be limited to: brain–computer interface, machine learning, natural language dialogue systems, sensing and perception, software agents, and cognitive and social science issues. The committee will produce a report with findings but no recommendations

This project is sponsored by the U.S Department of Defense. The start date for the project was August 31, 2012. An interim report will be issued after one year and the final report is expected to be issued in spring 2014.

Project Duration: 20 months
