Innovative Applications of Artificial Intelligence 2011: Introduction to the Special Issue

AI Magazine

Every year, AI Magazine devotes one fourth of its annual production to a special issue based on the Innovative Applications of Artificial Intelligence conference. Because IAAI is the premier venue for documenting the transition of AI technology into application, these special issues provide a snapshot of the state of the art in AI with the practical syllogism in mind; they present work that has value because it delivers value in use.

An Application of Transfer to American Football: From Observation of Raw Video to Control in a Simulated Environment

AI Magazine

Automatic transfer of learned knowledge from one task or domain to another offers great potential to simplify and expedite the construction and deployment of intelligent systems. In practice however, there are many barriers to achieving this goal. In this article, we present a prototype system for the real-world context of transferring knowledge of American football from video observation to control in a game simulator. We trace an example play from the raw video through execution and adaptation in the simulator, highlighting the system's component algorithms along with issues of complexity, generality, and scale. We then conclude with a discussion of the implications of this work for other applications, along with several possible improvements.


The Special Issue of AI Magazine on Structured Knowledge Transfer

AI Magazine

This issue summarizes the state of the art in structured knowledge transfer, which is an emerging approach to the general problem of knowledge acquisition and reuse. 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.



Three Anecdotes from the DARPA Autonomous Land Vehicle Project

AI Magazine

The DARPA Autonomous Land Vehicle was a 12’ tall, 8-wheeled robot with multiple sensors, tasked to go from point A to point B without human intervention in the hills outside of Denver in c. 1985. This was a large applied research effort that presented many opportunities for unusual experiences.


Advancing AI Research and Applications by Learning from What Went Wrong and Why

AI Magazine

This special issue of AI Magazine is dedicated to the proposition that problems populate the path to insight, implying the experiences and lessons learned should be shared.
