Charles River Analytics Discusses Affect-Inspired Robotic Operating Systems at BICA

Charles River Analytics, a developer of intelligent systems solutions, presented its research and development on biologically inspired computational systems at the 2012 Biologically Inspired Cognitive Architectures (BICA) conference, which took place on October 31-November 3, 2012, in Palermo, Italy. Dr. Scott Neal Reilly, Vice President, Cognitive Systems, discussed affect-inspired robotic operating systems, which are more reactive and efficient than existing operating systems. Charles River built these systems under the MARVIN effort for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).

“Speaking to the BICA community about our work in affect-inspired systems was a great opportunity for us to showcase our R&D projects,” said Dr. Neal Reilly. “We’ve had some significant breakthroughs and successes so far in using ideas from the human emotional system to make robots, computer networks, and other computational systems more reactive and efficient. We believe these advances can also be applied to cyber defense and network management, especially for low-bandwidth networks.”

Dr. Neal Reilly continued, “I hope to get the BICA community excited about our work in this area. There is a great deal of untapped potential for creating computational systems better able to interact with the real world.”
