Yahoo hires DARPA director to head research

Yahoo has opened an East Coast research center, hiring an artificial intelligence expert and former director at the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency to head the office and start similar operations in other countries.
  • Ron Brachman, 56, was named vice president of worldwide research operations, the Internet giant said Thursday.
  • The new research center in New York City will initially focus on media, microeconomics and e-commerce to help understand "how people get together and do things in markets (and) auctions, (how they) exchange goods and services, and how large groups of people have macroeconomic behaviors," Brachman said.
