Realizing superior performance through human-machine teaming
Computational systems are smarter and more autonomous than ever. Computing is becoming more and more pervasive through mobile computing, the Internet of Things, and other technologies. This increasing use of complex, autonomous systems demands new human-machine interaction models. Humans need to give higher-level commands or even communicate intent to ensembles of machines. They need to be able to transfer prioritized rules of engagement or ethical guidelines to machines.
We address technology gaps that hinder development of a new human-machine paradigm. We are developing tools to innovate data visualization (such as augmented reality), interfaces, and human-in-the-loop operation. We are applying biometrics and machine emotional intelligence for military and intelligence operational use. We are creating, training, and applying machine-learning algorithms to augment human analysis capability.
April 19, 2016 • Technical Report
As they constantly change network infrastructure, adversaries consistently use and update their tools. This report presents a way for researchers to begin threat analysis with those tools rather than with network or incident data alone.Download

July 09, 2014 • Conference Paper
In this paper, the authors provide documented research to advance the understanding of the unintentional insider threat (UIT) that results from phishing and other social engineering cases, specifically those involving malicious software (malware).Download
History of Innovation at the SEI in Human-Machine Interaction
The SEI has performed innovative research in human-machine interaction for almost 30 years that has benefited government, industry, and academia. Learn more about a few of the highlights.
Enhancing Computing Power at the Edge
KD-Cloudlet, a tool for implementing tactical cloudlets, springs from years of research on cloud computing at the tactical edge. The SEI makes this tool freely available as part of its transition mission.Read the Story
Bringing Science to Insider Threat Mitigation
For nearly two decades, the SEI CERT Division has focused on gathering and analyzing data about actual malicious insider acts and potential threats to U.S. critical infrastructures.Read the Story
