    This article presents a new research area called interactive task learning (ITL), in which an agent actively tries to learn not just how to perform a task better but the actual definition of a task through natural interaction with a human instructor while attempting to perform the task. The authors provide an analysis of desiderata for ITL systems, a review of related work, and a discussion of pos... View full abstract»

    Research on cognitive systems adopts the aims and assumptions of classical AI research, emphasizing the construction of intelligent agents that exhibit complex behavior. This article reviews the cognitive systems paradigm and two widely adopted hypotheses-physical symbol systems and heuristic search-that underpin it. The author introduces a third claim-the social cognition hypothesis-that states i... View full abstract»

    The interest in civilian missions with multiple unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) has increased significantly in recent years, but these missions pose multiple challenges related to operator workload and situational awareness. Human-machine interfaces must consider these challenges and control the amount of information flowing to operators. The authors propose a procedure for automatically modeling ... View full abstract»

    This article explores advances in the data mining arena to solve the fundamental MAXSAT problem. In the proposed approach, the MAXSAT instance is first decomposed and clustered by using data mining decomposition techniques, then every cluster resulting from the decomposition is separately solved to construct a partial solution. All partial solutions are merged into a global one, while managing pos... View full abstract»

    For decades, electricity customers have been treated as mere recipients of electricity in vertically integrated power systems. However, as customers have widely adopted distributed energy resources and other forms of customer participation in active dispatch (such as demand response) have taken shape, the value of mining knowledge from customer behavior patterns and using it for power system opera...

    The Internet of Things (IoT) has moved beyond the hype, with promising applications materializing and industries transforming through digitalization as well as servitization-that is, delivering a service as an integral part of a product. Since the application spread in today's IoT is wide and is typically structured in market-oriented groups, a system designer needs IoT system design patterns to a... View full abstract»

    Web platforms such as TripAdvisor allow tourists to describe their experiences with hotels, restaurants, and other tourist attractions. This article proposes TripAdvisor as a source of data for sentiment analysis tasks. The authors develop an analysis for studying the matching between users' sentiments and automatic sentiment-detection algorithms. They also discuss some of the challenges regarding...
