Kenneth Ford honored abroad and at home.
Kenneth M. Ford, founder and director of the Florida Institute for Human and Machine Cognition (IHMC), has been awarded an honorary doctorate from France's Universite Victor Segalen Bordeaux. Ford was honored for his contributions to the fields of information technology and artificial intelligence, along with his service as a member of the National Science Board. The Victor Segalen University is home to l'Institut de Cognitique (Cognition Institute). The Cognition Institute is a new university research center with a focus similar to that of IHMC: using technology to enhance human capabilities.
In addition, Ford was recently named as a member of the United States Air Force Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) in Arlington, VA. Dr. The SAB was established in 1947 as a vital link between the Air Force and the nation's civilian, scientific and engineering communities to promote the exchange of the latest scientific and technical information that may enhance the accomplishment of the Air Force mission. The Board reports to both the Chief of Staff and the Secretary of the Air Force and serves as a major force in determining U.S. Air Force research and development policy.
