PENSACOLA, Fla. -- The Florida Institute for Human and Machine Cognition is back on track with an expansion of its research facility following a nearly year-long delay caused by flooding in April 2014. Completion is scheduled for February 2016. The three-story, 30,000-square-foot building will consolidate work done at several buildings, increase IHMC's footprint and allow for future growth. The building facade will be reminiscent of the historic old brick warehouses that dominate the area. IHMC is a research institute investigating a broad range of topics related to building technological systems aimed at amplifying and extending human cognitive, perceptual, and physical capacities. Some of its work is in the field of aerospace. (Source: IHMC, 01/20/15)
