Dr. Huhns Elected AAAI Fellow

We would like to congratulate our very own Dr. Huhns for being elected a AAAI Fellow. The Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence's Fellows program was started in 1990 to recognize individuals who have made significant, sustained contributions---usually over at least a ten-year period---to the field of artificial intelligence. Dr. Huhns is recognized "For significant contributions to the field of multiagent systems and its applications in information management and service-oriented computing."

Cyber Challenge Contest Winners

Last week, three of our cyber defense team members competed in an international online contest, the US Cyber Challenge's CyberQuests 2014.
