    We develop a biotracking software, which helps biologists track animals and insects and study their behavior by analyzing videotaped data. To biologists, whose observation and analysis methods are time-consuming, the automated system has been a boon. The idea for the biotracking software was conceived while studying robots. We use hidden Markov models (HMMs) to track the moving robots and extract ... View full abstract»

    Over the past few years, researchers have been treated to two visions of the Internet's future. One is the Semantic Web, the next generation of World Wide Web technology. The second is grid computing, the next generation of internetworked processing. The Semantic Web is described as "an extension of the current Web in which information is given well-defined meaning, better enabling computers and p... View full abstract»

    The iCAN (intelligent car navigation systems) project is collaboration between academia (the University of Tokyo) and industry (the Toshiba and Yazaki corporations) to pursue intelligent systems and their enabling technologies for near-future intelligent transportation systems. The ITS scenario is complex, involving fundamental nontechnical (such as legal and institutional) issues. So, iCAN's visi... View full abstract»

    Recently, we have seen an explosion of interest in ontologies as artifacts to represent human knowledge and as critical components in knowledge management, the semantic Web, business-to-business applications, and several other application areas. Various research communities commonly assume that ontologies are the appropriate modeling structure for representing knowledge. However, little discussion... View full abstract»

    A key challenge for grid computing is creating large-scale, end-to-end scientific applications that draw from pools of specialized scientific components to derive elaborate new results. We develop Pegasus, an AI planning system which is integrated into the grid environment that takes a user's highly specified desired results, generates valid workflows that take into account available resources, an...

    The process of large-scale science must evolve to facilitate the next steps of scientific discovery. Grid technology and semantic tools will be valuable in dealing with the complex multidisciplinary simulation and data environments that next-generation science will require. We envision semantic Web-like tools that automatically check the validity of sequences of composed operations and data, and a... View full abstract»

    The Internet and World Wide Web are milestones in the history of information sharing. Scientists are increasingly relying on them to support their research. Knowledge is the basis of realizing intelligent services. The knowledge grid is a mechanism that can synthesize knowledge from data through mining and reference methods and enable search engines to make references, answer questions, and draw c...

    The list of "concepts that psychology really can't do without" includes such notions as neuronal connectionism, degrees of consciousness, mental representation of information, and dissociation. Of the pantheon of contributors to the history of psychology, Aristotle outranks all others in terms of the number of critical concepts he introduced, including the notion of the association of ideas, the l...

    Question answering on the Web is moving beyond the stage where users simply type a query and retrieve a ranked ordering of appropriate Web pages. Users and analysts want targeted answers to their questions without extraneous information. These answers might contain information from current and authoritative sources, terms with the same meaning as those used in the query, relevant links such as jus... View full abstract»

    The transition from laboratory science to in silico e-science has facilitated a paradigmatic shift in the way we conduct modern science. We can use computationally based analytical models to simulate and investigate scientific questions such as those posed by high-energy physics and bioinformatics, yielding high-quality results and discoveries at an unprecedented rate. However, while experimental ... View full abstract»

    Diminishing reserves of cheap, recoverable crude oil, together with increasing tensions between the Middle East and the West, will likely threaten our access to affordable oil in the future. Alternative fossil fuels such as coal, tar sand, and heavy oil will only worsen global warming. Hydrogen, however, is plentiful and clean, stores energy more effectively than batteries, burns twice as efficien... View full abstract»

    Just as the Internet is shifting its focus from information and communication to a knowledge delivery infrastructure, we see the Grid moving from computation and data management to a pervasive, worldwide knowledge management infrastructure. We have the technology to store and access data, but we seem to lack the ability to transform data tombs into useful data and extract knowledge from them. We r... View full abstract»

    The Mars Exploration Rover mission is one of NASA's most ambitious science missions to date. Launched in the summer of 2003, each rover carries instruments for conducting remote and in site observations to elucidate the planet's past climate, water activity, and habitability. Science is MER's primary driver, so making best use of the scientific instruments, within the available resources, is a cru... View full abstract»
