If you are looking for an answer to the question What is Artificial Intelligence? and you only have a minute, then here's the definition the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence offers on its home page: "the scientific understanding of the mechanisms underlying thought and intelligent behavior and their embodiment in machines."
However, if you are fortunate enough to have more than a minute, then please get ready to embark upon an exciting journey exploring AI (but beware, it could last a lifetime) …

The Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence was pleased to present the 2012 Fall Symposium Series, held Friday through Sunday, November 2–4, at the Westin Arlington Gateway in Arlington, Virginia. The titles of the eight symposia were as follows: AI for Gerontechnology (FS-12-01), Artificial Intelligence of Humor (FS-12-02), Discovery Informatics: The Role of AI Research in Innovating Scientific Processes (FS-12-03), Human Control of Bio-Inspired Swarms (FS-12-04), Information Retrieval and Knowledge Discovery in Biomedical Text (FS-12-05), Machine Aggregation of Human Judgment (FS-12-06), Robots Learning Interactively from Human Teachers (FS-12-07), and Social Networks and Social Contagion (FS-12-08). The highlights of each symposium are presented in this report.

The Thirteenth Innovative Applications of Artificial Intelligence Conference (IAAI-2001) was held on 7 to 9 August 2001 in Seattle, Washington, in conjunction with the Seventeenth International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence. As in past years, papers were solicited in two categories: (1) deployed applications and (2) emerging applications and technologies. Deployed applications are systems that have been in use for at least several months by individuals or organizations other than their developers, have measurable benefits, and incorporate AI technologies. Emerging applications are technologies and systems that are close to deployment and clearly show an innovative implementation of AI technologies.

In this special issue, we selected six of the papers, including one of the invited talks, and asked the authors to expand their conference presentations to provide more explanatory material. We believe these articles are representative of the current state of the art in innovative applications of AI.
