    The author discusses cognitive computers with the ability to reason, learn and respond intelligently to things that they have never encountered before. A truly cognitive system would be able to learn from its experience, as well as by being instructed, and perform better on day two than it did on day one. It would be able to explain what it was doing and why it was doing it. The author considers application foundations. View full abstract»

    In Arizona, a window of opportunity exists for using planned infrastructure expenditures to construct intelligent lanes on Interstate Highway 10 between Phoenix and Tucson for deploying intelligent vehicles (IVs). In 1998, the University of Arizona formed the Vehicles with Intelligent Systems for Transport Automation research team, which the ADOT charged with the mission of investigating new and existing technologies and concepts that address those issues. The Arizona state legislature and ADOT funded the VISTA project initially. The paper discusses the vehicle and control system. View full abstract»

    Artificial intelligence holds the keys to different things to different researchers. Feigenbaum, one of the forefathers of AI, has many opinions and perceptions of AI and has seen where AI has come from and where it is going. Feigenbaum made his name in expert systems. He invented the first expert system in 1967, an AI program that determined the molecular structure of chemical compounds. The author discusses Feigenbaum's achievements. View full abstract»

    The author presents a new perspective on peer-to-peer computing inspired by the works of Digital Biology and Nexus. While their focus is clearly not peer-to-peer computing, their findings apply to it. They provide an introduction to fundamental concepts in networks that are applicable to Internet computing.

  • The Sacagawea principle

    Many software tools and systems restrict the availability of information and make information integration and exploration difficult. Poorly designed tools are often brittle, because they prescribe task sequences. But in complex sociotechnical contexts, workers do not perform tasks; they engage in knowledge-driven, context-sensitive choices from among action sequence alternatives in order to achieve goals. So, good tools must be flexible $they must provide the information that workers need to generate appropriate action sequences by which they can achieve the same goal in different situations. Adapted from the writings of Donald Norman is a principle we call the Sacagawea Principle: Human-centered computational tools need to support active organization of information, active search for information, active exploration of information, reflection on the meaning of information, and evaluation and choice among action sequence alternatives. Context-conditional variation includes variation due to the worker-each worker has his or her own needs, entailing different requirements and constraints. This implies that individuals should be able to choose different trajectories to achieve the desired outcome in different ways. A good tool gives users discretion to generate various action sequences and express their preferences. As with many HCC principles, we have named this one after a person to give it a concrete and meaningful label. Sacagawea served as a guide, without whose help the Lewis and Clark expedition might not have achieved the successes it did. The name is also somewhat ironic, because Sacagawea was, for part of her life, a captured slave. The theme of machines and robots as slaves is arguably the oldest in the robotics literature, and it is still often used as a metaphor to describe the tools people use to accomplish their work. In this essay, we explore an approach for fulfilling the Sacagawea Principle in system design $an approach based on empirical study of the way in which people process their environments in complex worlds.
