Who We Are, Our Policies, and Other Notes
AITopics > About Us
AITopics is a mediated information portal provided by AAAI (The Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence), with the goal of communicating the science of AI to interested people around the world.
By offering a limited number of exemplary, non-technical resources that we have organized and annotated, AITopics seeks to provide visitors with meaningful access to basic, understandable information about AI. Each topic (see the SideBar Menu) and subtopic (see Site Map) offers a multitude of information to the user through the use of links to online articles, videos, and the occasional print resource.
AITopics also catalogs videos about AI stored digitally on other sites, or physically in institutional archives. For each video, the archive includes a brief description of the contents and personae of the video, one or more representative, short clips for classroom or individual use, and the location of the archival copy (e.g., at a university library). Any person may submit a video by filling out the submit new video form. Funding for this project is from the NSF (Award #0738341).
AITopics is a wiki where editors can edit, add, or delete pages directly from their browser. Readers may submit new content, which will be reviewed by an editor and added to the site.
It is the support of the community and user contribution that allows us to provide the most useful content.
To further understand what you can (and cannot) expect from this site and to maximize its usefulness, we ask that you please read our Springboard pages.
View our statement of purpose on the Policies page.
Our policy has always been to provide additional readings with more depth from published sources. Blogs and personal opinion pieces are not citable in scholarly publications, so we try to link to articles from refereed journals, book chapters, credible news sources, and occasionally university tech reports.
Please see our statement on Policies governing the selection of content for this site for more information.
