Leake, David B.


Passing the Torch

AI Magazine

This issue is my last as editor in chief of AI Magazine. It was a tremendous honor and privilege for me to lead AI Magazine, which I have done since 1999. It was a special pleasure to work with an outstanding team of volunteers—-the editorial board, column editors, and others—-and with the authors and reviewers, as well as with Mike Hamilton, managing editor, and the AAAI staff. As my administrative duties have expanded at Indiana University, where I am now executive associate dean of the School of Informatics and Com- puting, the time has come for me to pass the torch.


After Seventeen Years and 70 Issues ...

The Diversity of AI

AI Magazine

This issue of AI Magazine showcases the diversity of AI activities by accompanying its articles with an extensive set of reports on conferences and workshops, as well as with two special features.


AI Magazine Poster: The AI Landscape

AI Magazine

AI's first half-century produced great accomplishments, but many of the field's successes have remained unsung beyond the AI community. AI's integration into the fabric of everyday life has had tremendous impact, but the public may not recognize its many roles or understand its fundamental goals. In response, AI Magazine has developed a poster to help educate students, faculty, and the public about AI and to spur them to find out more about the field.

Report on the 2007 Workshop on Modeling and Reasoning in Context

AI Magazine

The fourth Modeling and Reasoning in Context (MRC) workshop was held on August 20–21, 2007, in conjunction with the Sixth International and Interdisciplinary Conference on Modeling and Using Context, at Roskilde University, Denmark. This year’s workshop included a special track on the role of contextualization in human tasks (CHUT). The overall goal of the workshop was to further the understanding, development, and application of AI methods for context-sensitive information technology.
