Can you beat Chloe’s nose? (DARPA wants to know)
By Stephen Trimble on 30 September, 2008 in Uncategorised
This is Chloe. She’s a dog. She’s actually not my dog, but my co-worker’s. Isn’t she cute? Anyway, DARPA wants to develop a nose just like hers, mucous membrane and all. The so-called “RealNose Effort” was opened to competition yesterday, and asks contractors to “build a ‘nose’ constructed from actual olfactory receptors that furtherleverages the components of the canine olfactory system to create abreakthrough detection system with potential capabilities beyond thatof a canine”. If you’re interested, sign up at “RealNose Teaming site” hosted by SAIC. But somehow I doubt you’ll ever beat Chloe.
