Research Topic Description, including Problem Statement:
Devices for detecting a variety of inputs including motion, pressure, and electrical activity are necessary for many human-augmentation technologies. However, development in human augmentation is incremental and derives from advances in technologies that fill a need. More recently, researchers have begun to realize the possibilities of these technologies in advancing human capabilities, and projects have developed with the aim of extending a person’s abilities. Sensors that enable human augmentation, for example, can include implants, biotechnologies, and information technologies. The aim of this topic is to develop a fundamental understanding of enhanced capabilities, augmented intelligence, and more rapid, structured, voluminous data exchanged between human and machine.
A brain-machine interface requires sensors to input information from brain function to a machine, or vice versa. Human augmentation has great potential through bioengineering to achieve significant advances in enhancement and control process of human capabilities beyond their normal range. There are different ways to approach this research; versatility is encouraged. For example:
Relevance to the Intelligence Community (IC):
The linkage to current DNI’s S&T priorities is dependent on the submissions we receive. However, we anticipate those submissions will likely include the following priorities: Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning and Biotechnology.
