Abstract:

This document proposes research areas for computer science based upon insights into biological systems. Both humans in a combat environment and other biological systems subject to stress are considered. The briefings in the document were presented as a workshop at the Krasnow Institute as sponsored primarily by the Office of Naval Research. The briefings are designed to be sequential and mutually supporting. They discuss the combat environment challenges for computer technology, generic behavior of biological systems when confronted with information associated with stress or trauma, a generic model which draws parallels between biological and electronic computer systems, and some short term ideas about what useful research can be done which can be applied to this field. The proposals and the supporting materials are designed to be a starting point in developing a multipath set of biologically based research initiatives which would serve to release computers by approaching specific challenges with different theses and architectures.
