AI Game-Playing Techniques: Are They Useful for Anything Other Than Games? In conjunction with the American Association for Artificial Intelligence's Hall of Champions exhibit, the Innovative Applications of Artificial Intelligence held a panel discussion entitled "AI Game-Playing Techniques: Are They Useful for Anything Other Than Games?" This article summarizes the panelists' comments about whether ideas and techniques from AI game playing are useful elsewhere and what kinds of game might be suitable as "challenge problems" for future research. AAAI-98's Hall of Champions exhibit) is an AI games researcher at the University of Alberta and author of the checkers program The early research on the alpha-beta search algorithm was useful in establishing a foundation for AI theories of heuristic search, and these theories have been useful in many areas of AI. Several of the panelists (particularly Schaeffer, Wilkins, and Fotland) pointed out that the minimax search algorithms traditionally associated with AI have only a limited range of applicability.

The Dark Ages of AI: A Panel Discussion at AAAI-84

AI Magazine

This panel, which met in Austin, Texas, discussed the "deep unease among AI researchers who have been around more than the last four years or so ... that perhaps expectations about AI are too high, and that this will eventually result in disaster."
