Dr. Frank Krueger part of a team awarded $1.8 million grant

A George Mason University researcher is heading a scientific team that
has received a Department of Defense grant to examine oxytocin as a
causal mechanism for long-term bonding between humans and autonomy.

Frank Krueger, an associate professor in Mason’s School of Systems
Biology, is collaborating with Hasan Ayaz (Drexel University), Mary
Lee (NIAAA), Jonathan Gratch (University of California), Ewart de
Visser (de Vissesr Research, LLC), on a three-year, $1.8 million grant
from the MINERVA Research Initiative Program with the goal to develop
more effective autonomy designs that promote the long-term affiliation
with autonomy, the creation of more effective human-autonomy teams,
and the quicker adoption of autonomous robots into military teams.
