Evolved Machines Selected as a Prime Contractor for DARPA Program to Engineer an Artificial Olfaction System
Date:10/21/2008

PALO ALTO, Calif., Oct. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Evolved Machines, Inc. has been selected as a prime contractor under a new Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) program to engineer an artificial olfaction system incorporating "brain-like" neural pattern recognition. The $5.1 million dollar contract will integrate work of 7 universities and corporations to develop a highly versatile and sensitive broad-spectrum device capable of detecting odorants under the challenge of real-world conditions. The DARPA program, which is titled "RealNose," emphasizes not only the high sensitivity of canine scent detection but also is the first program to tackle the separation of multiple odorants in the presence of unknown backgrounds that characterize the detection problems presented in real-world settings.

Immediate high-value applications are very diverse, ranging from airport, port and transit screening, to first responder domestic and military hand-held sets, to medical diagnosis, to autonomous 24/7 monitoring of the water supply and of containers on-board ship.

Evolved Machines (http://www.evolvedmachines.com) develops technology for sensory systems based on highly neural sensory signal processing, reverse-engineering circuitry in the brain to enable a new class of selfwiring devices that perform in the complexities of real-world environments, for both artificial olfaction and visual object recognition.
