    The author began Experiments in Musical Intelligence in 1981 as the result of a composer's block (D. Cope, 1991; 1996). His initial plan involved creating a computer program that would have a sense of his overall musical style. It would track the ideas of a current work such that at any given point the author could request a next note, next measure, next 10 measures, and so on. The author hoped th... View full abstract»

    The authors' model based approach to self adaptive software systems uses domain specific models and components to restore flexibility and adaptability to software systems running in dynamic environments. The model-integrated approach to self adaptive software, decomposes the problem into two major issues: the issues of representation and that of the reconfiguration mechanism. The goal of the work ...

    The article comprises two sections. In the first, the author suggests that speculative markets are a neglected way to help Us find out what people know. Such markets pool the information that is known to diverse individuals into a common resource, and have many advantages over standard institutions for information aggregation, such as news media, peer review, trials, and opinion polls. Speculative... View full abstract»

    While the Internet is changing the whole world, the combination of the MP3 format with the Internet is enabling powerful online distribution of music-revolutionizing the music world. Online music distribution offers advantages to both artist and consumer. As an artist, you can directly reach your fans over the Internet without paying the hefty price that music distribution companies take. As a con... View full abstract»

    For online yellow pages and product catalogs, structured content representations coupled with linguistic ontologies can increase both recall and precision of content based retrieval. Our OntoSeek system adopts a language of limited expressiveness for content representation and uses a large ontology based on WordNet for content matching. WordNet is a linguistic database formed by synsets-terms grou... View full abstract»

    Self-adaptive software requires high dependability robustness, adaptability, and availability. The article describes an infrastructure supporting two simultaneous processes in self-adaptive software: system evolution, the consistent application of change over time, and system adaptation, the cycle of detecting changing circumstances and planning and deploying responsive modifications View full abstract»

  • Computers scorinc GMAT essays? Impossible! Or is it?

    Publication Year: 1999 , Page(s): 5 - 7

    The author was quite skeptical when she first heard that computers were scoring the essay section of the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT-the SAT of graduate business schools). How, even with the decade and a half that she has written about the science and practice of artificial intelligence, could a computer possibly evaluate something as subjective as an essay? The system, called e-rate... View full abstract»

  • Control theory-based foundations of self-controlling software

    The authors' control theory based paradigm gives a framework for specifying and designing software that controls itself as it operates. Based on this paradigm, their self controlling software model supports three levels of control: feedback, adaptation, and reconfiguration. We believe this model can lead to software systems with an impressive capability for responding, adapting, and reconfiguring.... View full abstract»

    NASA's Deep Space One mission is unprecedented. Traditionally, NASA's space missions have been justified by science data return as the primary, if not the sole consideration. DS1 is the first NASA mission whose main purpose is to demonstrate the flight readiness of a set of technologies. The article shows how various AI related technologies are helping to launch NASA into the exciting new era of a... View full abstract»

    PARKA-DB is a scalable ontology management system that uses relational database techniques and supports the large ontologies needed in medical database system applications (among others). The medical system lets doctors load information about their patients' conditions (specifically microbiological data) into a hybrid ontology. The doctor uses pure ontological information to load a KB containing a... View full abstract»

    The authors describe a computer vision system that would automatically monitor its own performance and dynamically adapt to changing situations and requirements. Their approach is based on computational reflection and control system theory. An adaptive approach to aerial surveillance image analysis has these related benefits: the image analysis process can smoothly adapt to changes in image qualit... View full abstract»
