Seasons wishes

The ECCAI Board members wish to all ECAAI society members Merry Christams and a Happy 2009.


Luxembourg joins BNVKI-AIABN

At its recent recent General Assembly, on Friday October 31, the board of BNVKI-AIABN declared that the society intends to be a platform for AI research in Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg, in short the Benelux, and that it expressly invites and encourages researchers affiliated to Luxembourg-based academic institutions and companies involved in AI research to become involved as members. The association's board intends to hold on to both its statutory basis and the name BNVKI-AIABN (as well as to the URL ), but intends to express the Benelux scope (the Benelux being a well established concept and union) by carrying a subtitle: "BNVKI-AIABN: Benelux Association for Artificial Intelligence".


AI Dissertation Award

Nominations are invited for the 2008 Artificial Intelligence Dissertation Award sponsored by ECCAI, the European Coordinating Committee for Artificial Intelligence.

This Award includes a certificate signed by the ECCAI Chair and 1.500 Euros (which includes the travel grant for the Award ceremony). Nominations are due to Toby.Walsh@.au by January 31st 2009.

Eligible doctoral dissertations are those defended after December 1, 2007 in the general area of Artificial Intelligence. The dissertation must have been defended at an European university and the author must be a personal member of an ECCAI member society. Multiple submissions of the same doctoral dissertation to other dissertation award activities of other societies are excluded.

The selection of the most meritorious research PhD thesis is based on the originality, impact, and written quality of the work. Work that has been submitted to and/or accepted at workshops, conferences, or journals will be considered more favourably. Work that is primarily attributed to the student's own initiative will be considered more favourably. Finally, the quality of the written document in terms of its organization, polish, and use of language will be considered.

More information can be found at /diss-award/current.shtml.



ECCAI Conferences

Advanced Course in Artificial Intelligence (ACAI 2009) Intelligent Decision Support Systems Belfast, August 23-29 2009.

This prestigious Summer School will focus on methods and tools available for the development of Intelligent Decision Support Systems. These systems can take decisions by themselves or by interacting and cooperating with humans. They have a wide range of applications, for example: healthcare, finance and emergency response. The Summer School includes courses on preference modelling, argumentation, multiagent systems, uncertainty reasoning and various applications, delivered by distinguished academics and professionals with extensive experience in the development and application of such systems. The courses are designed to be interactive and will consist of a mixture of lectures and hands-on practice.

The Summer School targets an audience at the PhD level who are interested in this exciting area: current PhD students, advanced MSc students and other professionals with suitable technical backgrounds.

More information on this event, including programme, registration and available travel grants, is found at the ACAI 2009 web site.

February 8, 2009: New Insight Into How Bees See Could Improve Artificial Intelligence Systems. New research from Monash University bee researcher Adrian Dyer could lead to improved artificial intelligence systems and computer programs for facial recognition. ... Dr Dyer said the research could be applied in the areas of new technology, particularly the development of imaging systems. "What we have shown is that the bee brain, which contains less than 1 million neurons, is actually very good at learning to master complex tasks. Computer and imaging technology programmers who are working on solving complex visual recognition tasks using minimal hardware resources will find this research useful," Dr Dyer said. "Most current artificial intelligence (AI) recognition systems perform poorly at reliably recognising faces from different viewpoints. However the bees have shown they can recognise novel views of rotated faces using a mechanism of interpolating or image averaging previously learnt views." (info)


February 8, 2009: Cognitive Computing: Building A Machine That Can Learn From Experience. Scientists are studying complex wiring of the brain to build the computer of the future, one that combines the brain's abilities for sensation, perception, action, interaction and cognition and its low power consumption and compact size. Understanding the process behind these seemingly effortless feats of the human brain and creating a computational theory based on it remains one of the biggest challenges for computer scientists. University of Wisconsin-Madison research psychiatrist Giulio Tononi ... says the goal of building a computer as quick and flexible as a small mammalian brain is more daunting than it sounds. Tononi, professor of psychiatry at the UW-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health and an internationally known expert on consciousness, is part of a team of collaborators from top institutions who have been awarded a $4.9 million grant from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) for the first phase of DARPA's Systems of Neuromorphic Adaptive Plastic Scalable Electronics (SyNAPSE).

February 8, 2009: Who's Messing with Wikipedia?. ...as Wikipedia's popularity has grown, so has the debate over its trustworthiness. One of the most serious concerns remains the fact that its articles are written and edited by a hidden army of people with unknown interests and biases. Ed Chi, a senior research scientist for augmented social cognition at the Palo Alto Research Center (PARC), and his colleagues have now created a tool, called WikiDashboard, that aims to reveal much of the normally hidden back-and-forth behind Wikipedia's most controversial pages in order to help readers judge for themselves how suspect its contents might be.

February 8, 2009: Semantic Sense for the Desktop . ...enabling computers to grasp ...[meaningful relations between files] has been the subject of long-standing research. Recently, this has focused on the Semantic Web, but a European endeavor called the Nepomuk Project will soon see the effort take new steps onto the PC in the form of a "semantic desktop." Those working on the project, coordinated by the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), have been toiling for three years to create software that can spot meaningful connections between the files on a computer. Nepomuk's software is available for several computer platforms and now comes as a standard component of the K Desktop Environment (KDE), a popular graphical interface for the Linux operating system.

February 8, 2009: A Robomedic for the Battlefield. ... researchers at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) are developing technology to give battlefield medics a helping hand--literally. Howie Choset, an associate professor of robotics at CMU, has engineered a snakelike robotic arm equipped with various sensors that can monitor a soldier's condition. The robot can be wirelessly controlled via a joystick, so that a doctor at a remote clinic may move the robot to any point on a soldier's body to assess his injuries as he's being carried to a safe location.
