The Institute for Artificial Intelligence at UGA

The University of Georgia has always viewed Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence as interdisciplinary fields where computer science meets philosophy, psychology, linguistics, engineering and other disciplines. Both fields are devoted to the study of cognition and intelligent systems. Artificial Intelligence is particularly interested in creating computer systems that behave intelligently. The Institute for Artificial Intelligence is an interdepartmental research and instructional unit within the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences of the University of Georgia. The Institute’s strengths include logic programming, expert systems, neural nets, genetic algorithms, natural language processing and computational psycholinguistics. Affiliated with the Institute are over 75 people from over 10 different countries. We pride ourselves on the diversity of our student body and the ability of our programs to allow for the pursuit of personal research interests.

Artificial intelligence

Artificial intelligence is getting smarter by leaps and bounds – within this century, research suggests, a computer AI could be as “Smart” as a human being. Says Nick Bostrom, it will overtake us: “Machine intelligence is the last invention that humanity will ever need to make.” A philosopher and technologist, Bostrom asks us to think hard about the world we’re building right now, driven by thinking machines. Will our smart machines help to preserve humanity and our values – or will they have values of their own?

Artificial intelligence

Artificial intelligence was a term used in the fields of cybernetics, computer science, and related disciplines, to describe computer hardware and software sophisticated enough to reason independently, form new conclusions, and alter its own responses. The android Data, built in the early 24th century, may be an example of a true artificial intelligence according to this definition. Even certain highly advanced alien computers may or may not meet the criteria for artificial intelligence. Doctor Kurt Mandl held advanced degrees in computer science and artificial intelligence. In late 2367, Geordi La Forge wanted to attend a seminar about artificial intelligence on Risa.

A.I. Artificial Intelligence

A.I. Artificial Intelligence, also known as A.I., is a 2001 American science fiction drama film directed by Steven Spielberg. “Producer Jan Harlan stated that Kubrick”would have applauded” the final film, while Kubrick’s widow Christiane also enjoyed A.I. Brian Aldiss admired the film as well: “I thought what an inventive, intriguing, ingenious, involving film this was. ” Of the film’s ending, he wondered how it might have been had Kubrick directed the film: “That is one of the ‘ifs’ of film history – at least the ending indicates Spielberg adding some sugar to Kubrick’s wine. Screenwriter Ian Watson has speculated, “Worldwide, A.I. was very successful but it didn’t do quite so well in America, because the film, so I’m told, was too poetical and intellectual in general for American tastes. Plus, quite a few critics in America misunderstood the film, thinking for instance that the Giacometti-style beings in the final 20 minutes were aliens and also thinking that the final 20 minutes were a sentimental addition by Spielberg, whereas those scenes were exactly what I wrote for Stanley and exactly what he wanted, filmed faithfully by Spielberg.” Upon rewatching the film many years after its release, BBC film critic Mark Kermode apologized to Spielberg in an interview in January 2013 for “Getting it wrong” on the film when he first viewed it in 2001.
