However, I believe that the distinction of "neats" and "scruffies" raised at Cog Sci in '81 didn't define scruffies as people who built expert systems [they didn't really exist as a "real" part of MAD. Instead, I believe AI These are the researchers who read Hawkings and say "gee, if his model of the lo-23 second big bang is right, then the distribution of intergalactic gases should be relatively even. Let's go see if that's true. However, to run our experiments we'll need a more sensitive space-based sensing device, so let's work with the engineers to design one." I think one could make the case (although not from the data collected in Cohen's survey) that the two methodologies are not informed and influenced by each other to the extent they should or could be.

Special Issue on Structured Knowledge Transfer

AI Magazine

Its goal is to capture, in a general form, the internal structure of the objects, relations, strategies, and processes used to solve tasks drawn from a source domain, and exploit that knowledge to improve performance in a target domain. A Note from the AI Magazine Editor in Chief: Part Two of the Structured Knowledge Transfer special issue will be published in the summer 2011 issue (volume 32 number 2) of AI Magazine. Articles in this issue will include: "Knowledge Transfer between Automated Planners," by Susana Fernández, Ricardo Aler, and Daniel Borrajo "Transfer Learning by Reusing Structured Knowledge," by Qiang Yang, Vincent W. Zheng, Bin Li, and Hankz Hankui Zhuo "An Application of Transfer to American Football: From Observation of Raw Video to Control in a Simulated Environment," by David J. Stracuzzi, Alan Fern, Kamal Ali, Robin Hess, Jervis Pinto, Nan Li, Tolga Könik, and Dan Shapiro "Toward a Computational Model of Transfer," by Daniel Oblinger While the field of psychology has studied transfer learning in people for many years, AI has only recently taken up the challenge. The topic received initial attention with work on inductive transfer in the 1990s, while the number of workshops and conferences has noticeably increased in the last five years. This special issue represents the state of the art in the subarea of transfer learning that focuses on the acquisition and reuse of structured knowledge.

The Pitfalls of Hunting Cyber Threats with AI - CBR


Although it's not a'one size fits all' solution, artificial intelligence can be used to successfully hunt cyberthreats. Giovanni Vigna, CTO and co-founder of Lastline, identifies several of the key areas to address when thinking proactively about AI as a tool in detecting cyberthreats. Artificial intelligence (AI) will not automatically detect and resolve every potential malware or cyberthreat incident, but when it combines both bad and good behavior modeling it becomes a successful and powerful weapon against even the most advanced malware. By their very nature, malware detection tools must constantly evolve to stay up to date with ever-changing crimeware. One of the biggest evolutions in malware detection is the migration from trapping to hunting.

Report on the Twenty-Second International Conference on Case-Based Reasoning

AI Magazine

In cooperation with the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI), the Twenty-Second International Conference on Case-Based Reasoning (ICCBR), the premier international meeting on research and applications in case-based reasoning (CBR), was held from Monday September 29 to Wednesday October 1, 2014, in Cork, Ireland. ICCBR is the annual meeting of the CBR community and the leading conference on this topic. Started in 1993 as the European Conference on CBR and 1995 as ICCBR, the two conferences alternated biennially until their merger in 2010.
