Cleverbot: talk to an intelligent bot

"Cleverbot is Artificial Intelligence. Say whatever you like – songs, jokes, memes or anything, and it will respond. It learns what people say, in context, and imitates. Cleverbot is an entertainment – not made to be logical, give advice, or be useful. Many people keep talking for hours, and say it's too clever to be a bot – that it must be human. Yet it never is: it is a bot. Cleverbot is software. Maybe it even contains a little Actual Intelligence."

(Rollo Carpenter, Icogno Ltd.)

The impact of Artificial Intelligence on our everyday lives

"AI's first half–century produced great accomplishments, but many of the field's successes have remained unsung beyond the AI community. AI's integration into the fabric of everyday life has had tremendous impact, but the public may not recognize its many roles or understand its fundamental goals. In response, AI Magazine has developed a poster to help educate students, faculty, and the public about AI and to spur them to find out more about the field.

The poster's design was based on input from experts on how to convey key aspects of AI and to capture the imagination of a broad audience. The design does not attempt the impossible feat of summarizing all of AI–or even a substantial part–in a single poster. Nor does it present a list of new advances, which would soon become obsolete. Instead, it presents a snapshot of a few aspects of AI selected to catalyze interest and to prompt viewers to find out more by exploring AAAI Web resources. The resulting poster, The AI Landscape, is inserted in this issue of the magazine. The AI Landscape provides a glimpse of AI's multifaceted role in service of society, an illustration of the types of questions being addressed by the field, and a pointer to Web resources including a timeline tracing the field's history."

Media art is cross-cutting and doesn't fit neatly into any one clear genre or medium of creative arts practice

"Media art is cross–cutting. It doesn't fit into any one clear genre or medium of creative arts practice. In its broadest sense, media art can occur across visual, performance, sound, video, computer, game, networked, activist, site specific, animation, mobile, AI and Net Art. It can both embrace and subvert conventional art practices. As a result, many artists that work under the 'Media Art,' umbrella don't necessarily recognise themselves as connected in any way. They hold different creative interests, they work in wildly different ways and explore distinct areas of media form, process and subject. Some even find the term 'Media Art,' unhelpful and old fashioned."

(Claire Welsby, InterventTech.net)

[Part of an impassioned plea for support/recognition for Live and Media Arts in the UK. It follows on from an email by Ekow Eshun announcing the closure of the ICA's Live and Media Arts Department.]

Multi-Agent Systems: Cooperative Or Selfish Autonomous Entities

Katia Sycara & AAAI
The characteristics of MASs are: (1) each agent has incomplete information or capabilities for solving the problem and, thus, has a limited viewpoint; (2) there is no system global control; (3) data are decentralised; and (4) computation is asynchronous.The study of multi–agent systems (MAS) focuses on systems in which many intelligent agents interact with each other. The agents are considered to be autonomous entities, such as software programmes or robots. Their interactions can be either cooperative or selfish. That is, the agents can share a common goal (e.g. an ant colony), or they can pursue their own interests (as in the free market economy).
