Yay for AI! The videos in the article are interesting. I can only guess as to what percepts are given to the ghosts, and I guess the little blinky squares are a clue.

An IBM computer is going to compete on Jeopardy this week (Mon-Wed). Ought to be fascinating!

The ACM is running a programming contest. Not strictly AI, but it's similar in structure to the Google AI contest that ended in December. Here's the ACM challenge:


Here's the Google AI contest page:  The winning code (which apparently dominated the contest) was just an alpha-beta look-ahead.


Might be worth taking a run at...

So it turns out that on Valentines day this year that Watson, a computer system designed by IBM will be taking part as a contestant in a special televised edition of Jeopardy during which Watson will compete against two Jeopardy champions.

IBM has some very excited videos and website.  I think the video I've embedded below is a great teaser video.  It took me a while to find their slightly calmer FAQ that reveals more about the background of Watson than is in most of videos, including the open source framework that is Watson's principal infrastructure for assembling, scaling-out and deploying its analytic components.   This special Jeopardy challenge event takes place just three weeks into the Artificial Intelligence course I'm teaching this semester and you can bet I'll spend a week on it and some of the open source components behind it!

Ha! Tod Kurt's book - great one.  Tod is one of the founder/backers of CrashSpace, a hackerspace back in LA. I helped them out last year before moving to Maui.

Hi Jerry,  Thanks - have responded with more detailed Scooba throughts on my blog.  If you have a really large area (more than 80 square feet) it might need a couple of Scoobas.  Not sure what the new smaller one's range is.  But it does sound like hacking is a possibility.  Check out my latest blog post :-)


BTW, the courses I'm teaching online are HPU rather than UH now (I moved!), and the big advantage for the independent student is mainly price :-) Most classes require about 12 hours a week for the novice student, but probably much less for industry veterans :-)

Sam - I posted comment on your blog. Sounds like some problems with battery and other aspects of design. I saw iRobot has a new, smaller version due out RealSoonNow. My wife wants to get one for our large expanse of hardwood here in Haiku Maui.  We get a lot of mud and stuff tracked in by dogs/cats. Cleaning the floor daily is not going to happen.  Maybe the scooba needs some hacking?

On the off chance that anyone might be interested I've been blogging my experiences living with Scooba the floor washing robot.  It's a great example of something at the intersection of the MULT 3910 ST: Mobile Design and CSCI 4801 Artificial Intelligence courses I'm teaching at HPU this semester.

Hi AIers,

Here's a first draft of a syllabus for next semester's Artificial Intelligence course at HPU:

Here's my ai contest if anybody wants to try their hand:

Students and classes encouraged to participate. :)

All styles of solution are welcome (analytic, adaptive, etc) but I intend to keep raising the bar in various ways (in successive challenges) to see how the different approaches stack up.

[No prizes; it's collaborative to simply see what we can do.]
