    GPU-enabled AI is a subset of so- called general-purpose GPU computing (GPGPU). But it promises to be one of the fastest-growing subsets. The rise of cloud computing, recent high-powered graphics-chip releases by AMD's competitor Nvidia, and the growing acceptance of the OpenCL programming platform have all converged to allow GPU-enabled AI to take off in the months ahead. AMD continues to work wi... View full abstract»

    Asimov's three laws of robotics have been inculcated so successfully into our culture that they now appear to shape expectations as to how robots should act around humans. However, there has been little serious discussion as to whether the laws really do provide a framework for human-robot interactions. Asimov actually used his laws as a literary device to explore the lack of resilience in the int... View full abstract»

    Within the field of human-level intelligence, researchers are combining a variety of approaches toward the goals of human-like breadth, flexibility, and resilience for artificial intelligence systems. Each of the four papers in this special issue brings a different background and perspective on the subject, and hence a different technical approach. View full abstract»

    Understanding the world we live in requires access to a large amount of background knowledge: the commonsense knowledge that most people have and most computer systems don't. Many of the limitations of artificial intelligence today relate to the problem of acquiring and understanding common sense. The Open Mind Common Sense project began to collect common sense from volunteers on the Internet star... View full abstract»

    The companion cognitive architecture supports experiments in achieving human-level intelligence. This article describes seven key design goals of companions, relating them to properties of human reasoning and learning, and to engineering concerns raised by attempting to build large-scale cognitive systems. We summarize our experiences with companions in two domains: test taking and game playing. View full abstract»

    Natural language processing (NLP) is as yet far from achieving human levels of sophistication. This isn't surprising if we consider that people are amazing processors of language who leverage all of their knowledge of language, the speech context and the world in every language situation. A domain in which the divergence between the abilities of people and the abilities of machines is particularly... View full abstract»

    Systems with human-level intelligence must be both flexible and able to reason in an appropriate time scale. These two goals are in tension, as manifested by the contrasting properties of general inference algorithms and structured knowledge-based systems. The problem of resolving ambiguous, implicit, and nonliteral references exemplifies many of these difficulties. We describe an approach, called... View full abstract»

    Addressing the research opportunities we've identified could substantially broaden the spectrum of multilingual text-mining and its practicality for supporting global S&T knowledge management. These opportunities also share a common set of challenges that deserve further attention. For example, competitive intelligence surveillance, which allows organizations to understand their current and po... View full abstract»
