    Over the last 50 years, there has been extensive research into robotics and intelligent systems. Although much of the research has targeted specific technical problems, advances in these areas have led to systems and solutions that will profoundly impact society. Underlying most of the advances is the unprecedented exponential improvement of information technology. Several applications of robotics... View full abstract»

    Artificial intelligence explores the many different aspects of intelligence like a meandering stream carving out rivers, lakes, and deltas in an endless magnificent landscape. Each time new vistas on intelligence open up, we build new technologies to explore them and find new types of applications. In this article, the author briefly illustrate the current study of semiotic dynamics, the resulting... View full abstract»

    As AI moves into the second half of its first century, we certainly have much to cheer about. For AI to become truly robust, we must further our understanding of similarity-driven reasoning, analogy, learning, and explanation. In this article, the author presents some suggested research directions View full abstract»

    By moving away from metaphors such as transparent-translation channels or omniscient agents, will it be possible to create communicating cultures with simple conversational agents, which might make errors but recognize (and fulfill) their expected role? By accomplishing this objective, intercultural experiences will be a lot more enjoyable, and many may feel that we'll be preserving the various un... View full abstract»

    AI has been an exporter of ideas to computing in general (neural networks, agents, though robotics is more complex). But AI is now embracing ideas from elsewhere that were initially scorned because they were thought to have nothing to do with modeling intelligence and, especially, human intelligence. These are the statistical and probabilistic approaches to information capture and use that have be... View full abstract»

    What will AI systems be like in the near and long terms? Basically, we'll get the AI that people are willing to pay for. Consequently, many specialized applications will appear long before AI demonstrates its "Manifest Destiny" of human-level general intelligence. The AI demonstrations and applications we're going to see in the near future will trend strongly toward "cognitive prostheses" - system... View full abstract»

    AI technology's capacity to innovate in business and society is key to making the leap from techies to the mainstream market. Technology users in general are expecting increasingly more from the systems or artifacts with which they interact. Such expectations include ambient intelligence, cognition and interaction through natural language speech. Users are the "clients" of technologies, so technol... View full abstract»

    AI research has done much over the years to facilitate intelligent guessing. Rule-based systems using information about symptoms help solve medical questions given limited information, even helping the user ferret out the important information. Neural networks combine information about multiple variables to solve several guessing situations. Uncertainty representations help guide users to guessing... View full abstract»

    We demand phenomenality for scientific evidence, are utterly dependent on it for scientific evidence (it's all there is), and are unable to observe it. Phenomenality appears beyond empirical science's reach. A modern form of this decree is the mind-brain identity theorem (MBIT). Space limitations prevent a detailed discussion, but a large and complex history has embedded the MBIT at the heart of c... View full abstract»

    In general symbiotic robotic systems can be considered three-agent systems in which the agents are performing interdependent tasks. In such systems the robot's actions are generally controllable and observable the environment's actions are partially controllable and partially observable, and the human's actions are not (directly) controllable but are partially observable. This new paradigm will en... View full abstract»

    The authors argued that AI systems must be able to manipulate their own internal representations automatically to deal with an infinitely complex and ever-changing world and to scale up to rich, complex applications. Such manipulation must go beyond changing beliefs and learning new concepts in terms of old concepts; it must be able to change ontology's underlying syntax and semantics. Initial pro...

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (70 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The semantic Web extends the current Web with a semantic layer, which semantic-aware agents can use for reasoning. The idea is to enable a greater degree of task automation and user support than is possible with the current Web. Yet the semantic Web has implications for knowledge publishing and access. An ontology-driven world might lead to the imposition of dominant conceptual viewpoints on forma... View full abstract»

    The article included many scenarios in which intelligent agents and bots undertook tasks on behalf of their human or corporate owners. Of course, shopbots and auction bots abound on the Web, but these are essentially handcrafted for particular tasks: they have little ability to interact with heterogeneous data and information types. Because we haven't yet delivered large-scale, agent-based mediati... View full abstract»
