A Report to ARPA on Twenty-First Century Intelligent Systems

AI Magazine

The purpose of the meeting was to assist ARPA in defining an agenda for foundational AI research. Prior to the meeting, the fellows and officers of AAAI, as well as the report committee members, were asked to recommend areas in which major research thrusts could yield significant scientific gain--with high potential impact on DOD applications--over the next ten years. At the meeting, these suggestions and their relevance to current national needs and challenges in computing were discussed and debated. An initial draft of this report was circulated to the fellows and officers. The final report has benefited greatly from their comments and from textual revisions contributed by Joseph Halpern, Fernando Pereira, and Dana Nau. Computer systems are becoming commonplace; indeed, they are almost ubiquitous. We find them central to the functioning of most business, governmental, military, environmental, and healthcare organizations. They are also a part of many educational and training ...


Reports of the AAAI 2010 Conference Workshops

AI Magazine

The AAAI-10 workshop program included 13 workshops covering a wide range of topics in artificial intelligence. The titles of the workshops were AI and Fun; Bridging the Gap Between Task and Motion Planning; Collaboratively Built Knowledge Sources and Artificial Intelligence; Goal-Directed Autonomy; Intelligent Security; Interactive Decision Theory and Game Theory; Metacognition for Robust Social Systems; Model Checking and Artificial Intelligence; Neural-Symbolic Learning and Reasoning; Plan, Activity, and Intent Recognition; Statistical Relational AI; Visual Representations and Reasoning; and Abstraction, Reformulation, and Approximation. This article presents short summaries of those events. Interactive entertainment has become a dominant force in the entertainment sector of the global economy. In 2000, John Laird and Michael van Lent justified interactive entertainment as a domain of study in AI when they posited that computer games could act as test beds for achieving human-level intelligence in computers, leveraging the fidelity of their simulations of realworld dynamics.

The Role of Intelligent Systems in the National Information Infrastructure

AI Magazine

This report stems from a workshop that was organized by the American Association for Artificial Intelligence (AAAI) and cosponsored by the Information Technology and Organizations Program of the National Science Foundation. The purpose of the workshop was twofold: first, to increase awareness among the artificial intelligence (AI) community of opportunities presented by the National Information Infrastructure (NII) activities, in particular, the Information Infrastructure and Technology Applications (IITA) component of the High Performance Computing and Communications Program; and second, to identify key contributions of research in AI to the NII and IITA. The workshop included a presentation by NSF of IITA program goals and a brief discussion of a report aimed at identifying important AI research thrusts that could support the development of twenty-first century computing systems. That report, as well as the full set of initial suggestions for it from AAAI fellows and officers, was circulated to attendees prior to the workshop. Workshop attendees identified specific contributions that AI research could make in the next decade to the technology base needed for NII/IITA and the major research challenges that had to be met.
