Smart Information Flow Technologies (SIFT) is a research and development consulting company specializing in Human Factors and Artificial Intelligence. SIFT's goal is to make the information flow between humans and technology better for both sides -- more efficient, productive, pleasant, and safer. In order to achieve this goal SIFT employs top engineers in the fields of Computer Science and Psychology who specialize in Human Computer Interaction, Interface Design, Human Performance, Artificial Intelligence, Network and Cybersecurity, and Politeness and Etiquette models.
Since our inception in 1999, SIFT personnel have extended the state of the art in a wide range of domains from commercial and military flight decks to DoD small unit operations and have authored well over a hundred papers documenting our many contributions to the state of the art in multiple fields.
PC Magazine has published an interview with Dr. Jacki Morie of All These Worlds, LLC, a collaborator in building virtual environments for NASA astronauts via the ANSIBLE project. After touring the world rendered within ANSIBLE, the interviewer discusses how ANSIBLE can combat the adverse effects born from extended periods in isolated and confined environments, as astronauts in space flight are prone to experience.
Principal Researcher, Dan Thomsen, will be speaking at San Diego Comic Con on Saturday, July 11th. Mr. Thomsen is the principal investigator for SIFT's program to help veterans suffering from combat stress by creating comics. If you are attending SDCC, stop by to learn how SIFT technology helps beginners create comics and change attitudes about effective therapy.
Dr. David Musliner attended the International Conference on Unmanned Aircraft Systems (ICUAS) to present a summary of our recent NASA-sponsored study identifying gaps and challenges associated with certifying adaptive systems. The study suggests a roadmap for future certification approaches, including considering of a radical new licensing-automation concept.
Dr. David Musliner attended the International Conference on Digital Society to present our new cyber defense approach that automatically rewrites potentially vulnerable software binaries into "chronomorphic" binaries that change their in-memory instructions and layout repeatedly, at runtime. This new technique is practically invulnerable to code reuse attacks such as Return Oriented Programming (ROP), and even defeats online reconnaissance methods such as Blind ROP.
The SpringerReference Encyclopedia of Complexity and Systems Science (http://refworks.springer.com/mrw/index.php?id=259) is an authoritative single source for understanding and applying the basic tenets of complexity and systems theory as well as the tools and measures for analyzing complex systems in science, engineering and many areas of social, financial and business interactions. It is written for an audience of advanced university undergraduate and graduate students, professors, and professionals in a wide range of fields who must manage complexity on scales ranging from the atomic and molecular to the societal and global.
