Re: Introductions

> Test posts are just so ... 1990's so I thought I'd kill two birds with one stone and test the capabilities of the forum as well as make the first announcement. We're excited you've visited out community here on the VAC site and would really like to get you involved. Please reply to this thread and introduce yourself. Post as much or as little as you'd like. I'll start ...
> My name is Andrew Cowell and I'm a Senior Research Scientist in the Knowledge Discovery & Informatics group at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. My research interests include social media analytics, semantic wiki's, the formal representation of knowledge and the use of web 2.0 technologies in scientific domains. The majority of my work at PNNL has focused on aiding intelligence analysts in interacting with massive data. Since 2006 I've led a group of researchers investigating social computing technologies such as collaborative tagging, reputation systems, social book-marking and presence as potential methods for improving the intelligence process.
> Way back when (feels a LONG time ago!) my doctoral work, funded by Eastman Kodak, looked at methods to increase the perceived trust and credibility assigned to anthropomorphic computer characters. Prior to joining the lab, I worked for British Telecom Research Labs (in the UK) and Eastman Kodak Research Labs. My academic background is Computer Science B.Sc. (Univ. Of Bradford, UK), an M.Sc. in Cognitive Science (Univ. Of Manchester, UK) and a Ph.D. from the Univ. of Central Florida with a focus on Intelligent Interface Agents.
> I'm excited to be part of the Cognitive Foundations effort. I hope you'll enjoy getting involved and helping us push this most important endeavor!
