As Deputy Director, Dr. Maybury assumed responsibility for day to day management of operations including personnel management, strategic planning, and business development. As Thrust Leader of New Information Services, Mark led corporate technology strategy, business development, and management of $4.7M corporate investments in digital libraries, human computer interaction, intelligent agents, and spatial and temporal infrastructure for a broad set of C4I problems and clients. Mark also served as Director of the Bedford Artificial Intelligence Center, Leader of MITRE's Commercial Intelligent Information Access Core Competency and Chair of the Corporate Technology Council in AI. He chaired the international workshop on Intelligent Multimedia Information Retrieval. He gave a number of invited talks and tutorials to both sponsor and professional audiences.
1993-1995: Department Head, Advanced Information Systems Technology Department in the National Intelligence Division of the Center for Integrated Intelligence Systems. As Department Head and Director of the Bedford Artificial Intelligence Technical Center, Dr. Maybury was responsible for the direction of 60 technical and administrative staff engaged in a broad range of information systems architecture and prototyping activities encompassing advanced databases, open systems, collaborative computing, reverse engineering, intelligent training, speech and language processing, intelligent interfaces, and distributed computing. During this time, Mark established an office at Wright Patterson AFB to architect the National Air Intelligence Center's Enhanced Open Source Service Agent (OSSA) for the Intelligence Community's Open Source Coordinator Office (COSCO). Mark also led efforts to couple MITRE's Technology Program with national intelligence sponsors. He served as Principal Investigator of the MSR Multimedia Computing. He led an international workshop on Intelligent Multimedia Information Retrieval. He was an invited tutorial speaker on Intelligent Multimedia Interfaces at major international symposia (IEEE ICMCS, AAAI, ECAI, COLING, CHI, ACM Multimedia). As Director of the Bedford Artificial Intelligence Center, Dr. Maybury served on the Bedford Technology Council, two Corporate Technology Councils (AI, Open Source), as well as several conference program committees.
1992-1993: Associate Department Head, Advanced Information Systems Technology Department. As Associate Director of the Bedford Artificial Intelligence Technical Center, Mark was primarily responsible for managing the Technical Center work program of over 20 staff, leading strategic technology planning and business development activities, and integrating the Bedford Group's artificial intelligence work program with those across the corporation. Mark published scientific and technical papers in the areas of natural language generation, knowledge based simulation, text summarization, and intelligent multimedia interfaces.
1990-1992: As Group Leader of Speech and Natural Language Processing, Mark led a group of scientists that developed novel solutions for problems such as free text understanding, speaker-independent, continuous speech recognition, and intelligent information presentation. In a four month time period, he successfully led a group from the Bedford Artificial Intelligence and Networking Centers to develop a multimedia Open Source intelligence demonstration for an emerging corporate initiative. As Principal Investigator on the MSR Tailored Information Presentation, Mark developed novel techniques to enable the automatic generation of fluent English reports from simulations, expert systems, and large databases. The results of this research were published, and a journal article describing the generation of natural language event summaries and route directions was awarded the 1991 MITRE Best Paper and a $5,000 prize. He chaired a national workshop on Intelligent Multimedia Interfaces, which led to his editing a collection of the same title in 1993 (AAAI/MIT Press).
