Franz Inc Customer Applications: Artificial Intelligence

Allen Institute for Artificial IntelligenceApplication: Project AristoProject Aristo is a flagship project of AI2, a first step towards a machine that contains large amounts of knowledge in machine-computable form that can answer questions, explain those answers, and discuss those answers with users. SRI InternationalApplication: AuraAs part of Project Halo, Vulcan Inc.’s staged, long-range research effort towards the development of a “Digital Aristotle”, SRI has developed AURA to allow subject matter experts, for example, biologists, physicists, and chemists, and scientific educators to formulate knowledge and questions to query that knowledge, with an ever-decreasing reliance on knowledge engineers. Although interfaces can often benefit from animation, User Interface Management Systems rarely provide the tools necessary to easily support complex, state-dependent application output, such as animations. One difficulty of integrating animations into interactive systems is that animation scripts typically only work in very specific contexts. The heart of Loom is a knowledge representation system that is used to provide deductive support for the declarative portion of the Loom language.

A curated list of Artificial Intelligence courses, books, video lectures and papers. The Cambridge Handbook Of Artificial Intelligence – Written for non-specialists, it covers the discipline’s foundations, major theories, and principal research areas, plus related topics such as artificial life. Artificial Intelligence: A New Synthesis – Beginning with elementary reactive agents, Nilsson gradually increases their cognitive horsepower to illustrate the most important and lasting ideas in AI On Intelligence – Hawkins develops a powerful theory of how the human brain works, explaining why computers are not intelligent and how, based on this new theory, we can finally build intelligent machines. Super Intelligence – Superintelligence asks the questions: What happens when machines surpass humans in general intelligence. Our Final Invention: Artificial Intelligence And The End Of The Human Era – Our Final Invention explores the perils of the heedless pursuit of advanced AI. Until now, human intelligence has had no rival.

Artificial Intelligence Definition

Artificial intelligence is most commonly used in video games, where the computer is made to act as another player. Artificial intelligence is used in a wide range of video games, including board games, side-scrollers, and 3D action games. If the artificial intelligence is too good, a game might be impossible to beat, which would be discouraging for players. Video game developers often spend a long time creating the perfect balance of artificial intelligence to make the games both challenging and fun to play. If you find this Artificial Intelligence definition to be helpful, you can reference it using the citation links above.
