About AITopics

AITopics is the Internet's largest collection of information about the research, the people, and the applications of Artificial Intelligence. Our mission is to educate and inspire through a wide variety of curated and organized resources gathered from across the web. AITopics is brought to you by The Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI).

We have selected and annotated many exemplary, non-technical resources within the categories shown in the left panel. Within each category we offer abundant information through links to online articles, videos, and occasional selections of print resources.

We are are also accumulating links to online versions of books and papers that have influenced the growth of the field in a virtual archive of classic publications.

To submit new content, suggest changes or raise other issues, use the Site Feedback link at the bottom of any page.


Artificial intelligence is part of our global culture, and its impact on our everyday lives is growing. Searching for news about AI presents a deluge of information. Why not use a little AI of our own to better handle the task? NewsFinder scans high-quality online news sources every day and selects stories that it deems relevant to the Artificial Intelligence community. It also includes stories suggested by Google News. For each story, it determines the appropiate set of categories, shown in the left panel. Each Monday morning, NewsFinder publishes highlights of the week's news to the AAAI AI-Alert mailing list. You can also view the news here at AITopics at any time or subscribe to the RSS feed.

NewsFinder's source code can be found at the AAAI GitHub page.
