Meet Kenneth Ford, an extremely properly-learn, extremely completed and interesting man with such an infinite quantity of information and affect within the cognitive sciences area.
Kenneth Ford is Founder and Chief Executive Officer of the Florida Institute for Human & Machine Cognition (IHMC) — a not-for-revenue analysis institute situated in Pensacola, Florida. IHMC has grown into one of many nation’s premier analysis organizations with world-class scientists and engineers investigating a broad vary of subjects associated to constructing technological methods geared toward amplifying and increasing human cognition, notion, locomotion and resilience. Richard Florida has described IHMC as “a new model for interdisciplinary research institutes that strive to be both entrepreneurial and academic, firmly grounded and inspiringly ambitious.” IHMC headquarters are in Pensacola with a department analysis facility in Ocala, Florida. In 2004 Florida Trend Magazine named Dr. Ford one in all Florida’s 4 most influential residents working in academia.
Dr. Ford is the writer of a whole lot of scientific papers and 6 books. Dr. Ford’s analysis pursuits embody: synthetic intelligence, cognitive science, human-centered computing, and entrepreneurship in authorities and academia. Dr. Ford obtained his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Tulane University. He is Emeritus Editor-in-Chief of AAAI/MIT Press and has been concerned within the modifying of a number of journals. Ford is a Fellow of the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI), a constitution Fellow of the National Academy of Inventors, a member of the Association for Computing Machinery, a member of the IEEE Computer Society, and a member of the National Association of Scholars. Ford has obtained many awards and honors together with the Doctor Honoris Causas from the University of Bordeaux in 2005 and the 2008 Robert S. Englemore Memorial Award for his work in synthetic intelligence (AI). In 2012 Tulane University named Ford its Outstanding Alumnus within the School of Science and Engineering. In 2015, the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence named Dr. Ford the recipient of the 2015 Distinguished Service Award. Also in 2015, Dr. Ford was elected as Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).
In January 1997, Dr. Ford was requested by NASA to develop and direct its new Center of Excellence in Information Technology on the Ames Research Center in Silicon Valley. He served as Associate Center Director and Director of NASA’s Center of Excellence in Information Technology. In July 1999, Dr. Ford was awarded the NASA Outstanding Leadership Medal. That similar 12 months, Ford returned to non-public life and to the IHMC.
In October of 2002, President George W. Bush nominated Dr. Ford to serve on the National Science Board (NSB) and the United States Senate confirmed his nomination in March of 2003. The NSB is the governing board of the National Science Foundation (NSF) and performs an vital function in advising the President and Congress on science coverage points. In 2005, Dr. Ford was appointed and sworn in as a member of the Air Force Science Advisory Board.
In 2007, he grew to become a member of the NASA Advisory Council and on October 16, 2008, Dr. Ford was named as Chairman – a capability wherein he served till October 2011. In August 2010, Dr. Ford was awarded NASA’s Distinguished Public Service Medal – the very best honor the company confers.

Also, on November sixth he will probably be inducted into the Florida Inventor’s Hall of Fame bringing the entire to 28 members together with the likes of Thomas Edison, Henry Ford and different luminaries. Interestingly, four of the 28 members are related to IHMC.
