In July, neuroscientist Sebastian Seung and his collaborators finished an 18-month marathon task. Working with roughly a terabyte of data, his team used artificial intelligence to reconstruct all the neural wiring within a 0.001 cubic millimeter chunk of mouse cortex. ... His team is racing to complete the next stage of the project — they plan to expand their efforts a thousand-fold to reconstruct a cubic millimeter chunk of mouse cortex. Both maps are part of a multi-lab program called Machine Intelligence from Cortical Networks (MICrONS), which is funded by Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA), the U.S. federal government’s intelligence research agency.

Geospatial imagery as well as facial recognition and other biometrics are driving the intelligence community’s research into artificial intelligence. Other intelligence activities, such as human language translation and event warning and forecasting, also stand to gain from advances being pursued in government, academic and industry research programs funded by the community’s research arm. The Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) is working toward breakthroughs in artificial intelligence, or AI, through a number of research programs.

Deniz Ones and Mustafa al'Absi, professors of psychology and behavioral medicine, respectively, are part of a team from six universities developing out mPerf, a $13.8 million effort to use sensors and software to examine employee behavior. That program is part of the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity, the intelligence community's research and development unit, and its Multimodal Objective Sensing to Assess Individuals with Context project, known as MOSAIC for short.

If a FitBit can make us better at working out, maybe it can make us better at working, too. That’s the basic premise behind a nationwide study looking at work performance using wearables, smartphones and other technology that can track responses to different tasks.
