Faculty Expert Profile

Michael Wolmetz

  • Program Manager, Human & Machine Intelligence


  • Whiting School of Engineering
  • Applied Physics Lab

Michael Wolmetz is a program manager for the Research and Exploratory Development Department of the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory. Wolmetz was recently quoted by the BBC in an article about whether humans will be able to "control the world with our minds?" He said in order for humans to keep up with the pace of innovation in artificial intelligence and machine learning they may have to "directly interface with these systems." Brain-computer interfaces will empower humans to expand how they interact with the world beyond the use of their bodies and senses.

Wolmetz has lead several research groups working on defense, intelligence, and clinical applications for cognitive science and neuroscience. He currently manages intelligent systems research in machine intelligence, human intelligence, and neuroscience for the Advanced Science and Technology Development program.

He received a bachelor's degree in computer science from Yale University and a doctorate in cognitive science from Johns Hopkins University. He completed a postdoctoral fellowship in the JHU Electrical and Computer Engineering Department.
