Jim Carciofini

Mr. Carciofini has 25 years experience doing research in computer science. He has been the lead software architect on a wide range of software projects. He is sought out for his ability to analyze new problem domains and design and implement novel solutions. Most recently he has been developing systems that use real-time physiological data to augment and improve human performance on a variety of tasks. He was the lead software developer on the DARPA Neurotechnology for Intelligence Analysts program which has shown a six fold increase in productivity using these techniques. On the DARPA Augmented Cognition program he was the key developer of a distributed physiological data collection system that was ultimately used to instrument several National Guard soldiers during a two week training exercise at the Army's Aberdeen Proving Grounds.
 
Mr. Carciofini spent several years as the lead architect of Honeywell's constraint-based software library. He was also a key developer using this set of tools to create novel solutions in several domains. These domains included formal verification of the algorithms for Honeywell's MEMS Gyro; petroleum refinery scheduling, batch manufacturing, continuous manufacturing, SAFEbus avionics processor and communications scheduling, satellite operations scheduling, and space shuttle operations planning.
 
Mr. Carciofini has been recognized with many awards in his service at Honeywell Labs. In 1994 he won Honeywell's highest engineering honor, the H.W. Sweatt Award, for his work on the SAFEbus avionics processor and communications scheduling tool for the Boeing 777. In 2006 he was recognized with the Honeywell Aerospace Technical Achievement Award for his work the DARPA Augmented Cognition (AugCog) program. In 2009 he was again awarded the Honeywell Aerospace Technical Achievement Award as a member of the team on the DARPA Neurotechnology for Intelligence Analysts (NIA) program.
