AFRL scientists selected SIFT's Project7 platform for human-machine team information analysis (Phase 2 SBIR, PI: Dr. Scott Friedman) as a Success Story and presented Project7 materials at the 2021 Human Systems Community of Interest Annual Meeting in September 2021.

SIFT Senior Researcher Sonja Schmer-Galunder participated in a panel discussion with Austria’s minister of Education, Science, and Research at the Research and Innovation Talk 2021 (ARIT) , organized by the Austrian Embassy in Washington D.C. The goal of this event is to foster American-Austrian collaborations and knowledge exchange by discussing how technological innovation can help address global challenges. 

Noam Benkler, a new SIFT hire, has just been awarded first place in the senior thesis category of the Federal Reserve's 2020 Minneapolis Economic Association (MEA) Undergraduate Student Paper Contest,which covers all colleges and universities in MN and WI, and will be honored during the 2020 MEA virtual conference next week!

SIFT’s Sonja Schmer-Galunder co-authored a Nature correspondence article discussing how behavioral sciences and human intentions have long influenced machine-learning and technological systems. 

SIFT Senior Researcher Sonja Schmer-Galunder was interviewed by Marina Koren from The Atlantic about what we can learn from our research on confinement and isolation studies in preparation for future space travel in the context of the current global COVID19 pandemic.

SIFT is proud to sponsor the International Conference on Automated Planning and Scheduling (ICAPS), which is the premier forum for exchanging the latest research results on the theory and applications of intelligent planning and scheduling systems that reason and act over extended timeframes to accomplish complex user-assigned tasks.

Dr. Scott Friedman authored a paper in Cognitive Science with collaborators from Northwestern University:

Dr. Miller has recently published an invited review of work by Dr. Dave Kaber of North Carolina State University.  Dr. Kaber's article, Issues in Human-Automation Interaction Modeling: Presumptive Aspects of Frameworks of Types and Levels of Automation, promises to be a seminal review of the concept of "Levels of Automation" as it has been used in the Human Factors and Human-Autonomy Interaction fields over the past 30 years, along with a call for action going forward.
