    Swarthmore College takes a two-pronged approach to undergraduate education by integrating educational goals with robotics research. First, it offers courses in artificial intelligence, computer vision and robotics. Both AI and computer vision serve as prerequisites for the robotics course. Second, it involves students in ongoing research projects as part of their undergraduate experience. To keep ... View full abstract»

    Having robot assistants represent us in meetings, shop for us, or do chores, for instance, would be useful. But to do so, robots must be able to face the contingencies of the real world by making the most of their sensing, actuating, processing, and reasoning abilities. To promote research efforts in that direction, the AAAI has been organizing the Mobile Robot Challenge since 1999. This initiativ... View full abstract»

    The author discusses the diversity in the field of intelligent systems. He argues that splintering into smaller and smaller, often competing, societies might be locally profitable, but globally, it is the kiss of death for the field and for future funding. His plea to the community is to find ways to break down the walls and start uncovering what the intelligent systems elephant is really like. We... View full abstract»

    E-commerce has become an important means of transacting business spanning a wide range of interactions, including business to business, business to consumer, and individual to individual. Fuzzy set-based intelligent agents can autonomously and instantaneously determine which ad to display on a Web site, on the basis of the viewer's characteristics. This approach works when several advertisers must... View full abstract»

    The Web has drastically changed the availability of electronic information, but its success and exponential growth have made it increasingly difficult to find, access, present and maintain such information for a wide variety of users. In reaction to this bottleneck many new research initiatives and commercial enterprises have been set up to enrich available information with machine-processable sem... View full abstract»

    Artificial life (Alife) explores natural life by attempting to create biological phenomena in computers and other nonliving media. Alife also strives to introduce a broader, more universal understanding of life (accessible to new kinds of manipulation and testing), than that defined by traditional biology. Looked at in this way, Alife represents the flip side of the empirical-analytic approach of ... View full abstract»

    In two or three decades, the predominant transportation system in much of the world will likely be dualmode transportation. We will use even more private cars but do it without our current problems by operating them in two distinct modes. We will drive them in the normal manner on the streets, and they will travel automatically at high speeds on special guideways with no driver and their motors sh... View full abstract»
