In “sixth sense” for understanding local cognitive models

The University of Maryland Applied Research Laboratory for Intelligence and Security (ARLIS) seeks to hire a postdoctoral research associate to work on a project that will design and build an initial system, and then test using human subjects, to assess the feasibility of achieving a “sixth sense” of the local environment, and a possible path towards understanding the cognitive models used by a local population. Understanding the cognitive models used by a local population is fundamental to Cognitive Security, which encompasses online and offline influence -- and protection from influence -- of people ranging from individuals to large societies. One manifestation of these models is how people respond reflexively to multimodal stimuli in their environment. These reflexes represent a form of local situational understanding that can be viewed as a sixth-sense. Integration and processing of these reflexes usually takes weeks to months, and even years, to develop a sixth sense approaching that of an indigenous individual who grew up in the environment. Our ultimate goal is to reduce this time to days or less. The multi-disciplinary nature of the project and team will create opportunities for publishing for a wide variety of audiences. The associate will be responsible for some administrative tasks to include development of IRB human subject’s protocols.

This is a full-time position with benefits. The initial term is for 12 months and is renewable subject to the availability of funding. For this postdoctoral position, a Ph.D. or equivalent, in a field related to experimental cognitive psychology, cognitive science, or applied neuroscience must be awarded prior to the start date.

Required skills:

• Minimum of 4 years’ programming experience (Java, Python, and C++, as well as with Windows, Linux and Unix platforms)

• Minimum of 2 years’ experience in experimental cognitive psychology, experimental cognitive science, or applied neuroscience, and in statistical methods of data analysis, and machine learning

• Experience working with internal review board (IRB) human subject’s protocols

• Experience working in a team, work to strict deadlines, in established parameters

• Ability to perform basic project management

Preferred skills:

• Familiarity with body-worn sensors for the collection non-visual and visual sense-impressions

• Familiarity with brain-inspired processing of sense-impressions, e.g., models of the hippocampus as a memory substrate to store and recall non-visual sense-impressions to generalize and correlate with visual imagery and spatial/temporal coordinates to accelerate sixth-sense formation.

• Familiarity with machine learning packages, esp. deep neural nets

• Familiarity with empirical method of data collection and model validation

Review of applications will begin immediately and continue on a rolling basis. The preferred start date is as soon as possible.

In symbiotic human-bot/agent team technologies for Cognitive Security.

The University of Maryland Applied Research Laboratory for Intelligence and Security (ARLIS) seeks to

hire a postdoctoral research associate to work on a project that will study how symbiotic human-bot/agent team technologies can address key challenges regarding information operations in support of Cognitive Security, which encompasses online and offline influence -- and protection from influence -- of people ranging from individuals to large societies.

The research associate is expected to conduct hackathons that bring operators and developers together to a) identify and prioritize the key challenges, and b) explore symbiotic human-bot/agent team solutions to the prioritized challenges. The results from these hackathons will flow into a report on recommendations for development of specific symbiotic human-bot/agent team technologies to enable timely, effective and assured information operations in support of Cognitive Security. The multi-disciplinary nature of the project and team will create opportunities for publishing for a wide variety of audiences. The associate will be responsible for some administrative tasks including management of web developers and other programmers.

This is a full-time position with benefits. The initial term is for 12 months and is renewable subject to the availability of funding. For this postdoctoral position, a Ph.D. or equivalent, in a field related to computer science, computational social science, experimental social psychology or cognitive science, must be awarded prior to the start date.

Required skills:

• Minimum of 4 years’ programming experience (Java, Python, and C++, as well as with Windows,

Linux and Unix platforms)

• Minimum of 2 years’ experience natural language processing, socio-behavioral computing, human-computer dialogue, statistical methods of data analysis, and machine learning

• Experience organizing hackathons

• Experience working in a team, work to strict deadlines, in established parameters

• Ability to work with developers and operators and perform basic project management

• Work with social media data collection, analysis, or processing

Preferred skills:

• Familiarity with Cognitive Security and information operations

• Familiarity with linguistics and methods of conversational analysis to include sentiment analysis and metaphor extraction

• Familiarity with machine learning packages, esp. deep neural nets

• Familiarity with empirical method of data collection and model validation

• Corpus collection, web-scraping, social media data collection, annotation

• Comfortable working with programmers and non-programmers on a team

• Experience working with internal review board (IRB) human subjects protocols

Review of applications will begin immediately and continue on a rolling basis. The preferred start date is as soon as possible.
