HRL has developed a computer model of human associative memory that surpasses previous models in accuracy while avoiding the common problem of false memories that plagued earlier such models.
HRL Laboratories, LLC, will leverage electronic brain-cell technology for a new computer architecture that promises more compact, energy-efficient, and capable systems. The program is part of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency program Foundations Required for Novel Compute (FRANC).
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate has awarded HRL Laboratories, LLC, $2.2 million to develop technology that is capable of continuously confirming that the person operating a mobile device is the device’s authorized user. HRL’s Information and Systems Sciences Laboratory, in conjunction with its Microelectronics Laboratory, will create this new mobile device authentication technology.
