    From online shopping to Web-based communities to on-demand videos, the Internet has proven its mettle. The Internet is also struggling to support an increasing number of new uses it wasn't built for, such as mobile applications. Researchers have come up with patches to let current Internet technology cope with new developments. With this in mind, scientists throughout the world are looking at a la... View full abstract»

    The dramatic changes in the software business over the past few years have important implications for both users and producers of software products and services. Traditional product sales and license fees have declined, and product company revenues have shifted to services such as annual maintenance payments that entitle users to patches, minor upgrades, and often technical support. A dramatic shi... View full abstract»

    We have come a long way since programming had to be done by tediously listing machine-level instructions that prescribed how a specific computer was to modify and move bits and words in its memory. The author describes his dream about freeing ourselves from the straightjackets of programming, making the process of getting computers to do what we want intuitive, natural, and also fun. He recommends... View full abstract»

    Deep Green is a vision-based, intelligent robotic system that currently shoots pool at a better-than-amateur level, with the ultimate goal of challenging a proficient human opponent at a championship level. The system's robotic aspects rely primarily on computer vision. The system is centered on a 3-degree-of-freedom gantry robot mounted to the ceiling to avoid impeding human access to the table.

    In digital evolution, self-replicating computer programs-digital organisms-experience mutations and selective pressures, potentially producing computational systems that, like natural organisms, adapt to their environment and protect themselves from threats. Such organisms can help guide the design of computer software. View full abstract»

    Applying a suite of tools from artificial intelligence and data mining to existing archaeological data from Monte Alban, a prehistoric urban center, offers the potential for building agent-based models of emergent ancient urban centers. The authors use decision trees to characterize location decisions made by early inhabitants at Monte Alban, a prehistoric urban center, and inject these rules into... View full abstract»
