ihmc - Ocala
This is the location of the Ocala office of ihmc (Florida Institute for Human & Machine Cognition); ihmc also has an office in Pensacola, Florida.
From the ihmc website:
"IHMC is a not-for-profit research institute of the Florida University System and is affiliated with several Florida universities.
"Researchers at IHMC pioneer technologies aimed at leveraging and extending human capabilities. Our human-centered approach often results in systems that can be regarded as cognitive or perceptual prostheses, much as eyeglasses are a sort of ocular prosthesis. These systems fit the human and machine components together in ways that exploit their respective strengths and mitigate their respective weaknesses...
"Current active research areas include: knowledge modeling and sharing, adjustable autonomy, robotics, advanced interfaces and displays, communication and collaboration, computer-mediated learning systems, intelligent data understanding, software agents, expertise studies, work practice simulation, knowledge representation, and other related areas."
