The University of South Florida and Florida's Institute for Human & Machine Cognition has reached a partnership agreement to jointly work on research in the areas of cybersecurity, surgical robotics, underwater autonomous vehicles, natural language processing and human-machine coordination. Under the agreement, the two organizations will share facilities, equipment, services and personnel involved in various projects. The agreement was forged between IHMC CEO Ken Ford and Rick Baker, former mayor of St. Petersburg, who is now USF's vice president for public policy and innovation partnerships. IHMC, established by the state Legislature in 2004 as a nonprofit research institute, is based in Pensacola, with an office in Ocala.
