Citation from Royal Society website:
"Alan Bundy has made world-leading contributions to both automated reasoning and the automated formation and evolution of representations of knowledge. He has developed novel techniques with improved efficiency, range and behaviour. His work on automated reasoning has found application in hardware and software systems development, where it has increased the level of automation. It has decreased the skill level and development time required to verify computer programs and has been taken up by industry. His work on representation evolution facilitates communication between agencies with different representations of related knowledge."

The Royal Society is a Fellowship of the world's most eminent scientists and is the oldest scientific academy in continuous existence. There are 44 newly elected Fellows of the Society.

[[AITopics/GrandChallenges#disaster | DARPA Robotics Challenge: Here Are the Official Details]]. IEEE Spectrum, POSTED BY: Erico Guizzo & Evan Ackerman / Tue, April 10, 2012. Today the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is announcing a bold new program aiming to advance robotics technology for disaster response. The DARPA Robotics Challenge is offering tens of million of dollars in funding to teams from anywhere in the world to build robots capable of performing complex mobility and manipulation tasks such as walking over rubble and operating power tools. It all will culminate with an audacious competition with robots driving trucks, breaking through walls, and attempting to perform repairs in a simulated industrial-disaster setting. The winner takes all: a $2 million cash prize.

2011/OPINION/09/07/rushkoff.jobs.obsolete/index.html?hpt=hp_c1&is_LR=1| Are jobs obsolete?]] By Douglas Rushkoff, Special to CNN (September 7, 2011). "New technologies are wreaking havoc on employment figures -- from EZpasses ousting toll collectors to Google-controlled self-driving automobiles rendering taxicab drivers obsolete. Every new computer program is basically doing some task that a person used to do. But the computer usually does it faster, more accurately, for less money, and without any health insurance costs.

We like to believe that the appropriate response is to train humans for higher level work. Instead of collecting tolls, the trained worker will fix and program toll-collecting robots. But it never really works out that way, since not as many people are needed to make the robots as the robots replace. ... we might want to stop thinking about jobs as the main aspect of our lives that we want to save. They may be a means, but they are not the ends

CCC Blog edited by Erwin Gianchandani (August 5th, 2011). &quot;...Beyond teaching particular useful skills, computer science teaches ways of thinking that are necessary in order to be an effective and engaged citizen. Computer science teaches an appreciation for complex systems, including the need to understand context and requirements, the unexpected consequences of small changes, and tradeoffs between maintaining a legacy system and building anew from scratch. ...Perhaps most importantly, computer science teaches optimism in the face of enormous complexity. ... indeed, much of the theory of computer science deals with what cannot be computed. Even in the latter case, we retain our optimism, and work on good approximate solutions to inherently intractable problems.

These lessons from computer science support vibrant and progressive democracies. While the humanities may help us sympathize with those who are marginalized and different, the habits of mind inculcated by computer science can lead us to go beyond mere sympathy and create a society that promotes human rights and economic security.&quot;

* Old bug found (June 5, 2011) -- sorry for two weeks' identical postings. When one of our news sources changed formats, the code broke. One of the first tasks for our new summer intern, Joshua Eckroth (who isolated the cause), is to improve the software's robustness to similar events, before next week's news is published.

* Now that the automated NewsFinder service is working, we are working to improve it. The first thing is to extend the breadth of the stories that the program finds interesting and relevant. Stories about robots are good, but there's much more to AI. One difficulty is that the popular press publishes many more stories about robots than any other part of AI. (We just don't see screaming headlines like "The Ontologies are Coming!") Suggestions welcome.

* For information about the NewsFinder program see [[AITopics/AINewsProcedure| '''Details about the NewsFinder program''']]. Details are described in our July, 2011 paper for IAAI listed there.

* We have hired a new summer intern, Joshua Eckroth (Ohio State University), to help us improve NewsFinder and other aspects of AITopics. AIJ sponsorship has very kindly provided funds for the intern and for digitizing more out of print classics books in AI.

&quot;Enrollment in computer science programs, and degrees from them, are rising after a decade of decreases, despite much handwringing about the decline of American competitiveness in technology and innovation from President Obama on down. And educators and technologists say the inspiration is partly Hollywood’s portrayal of the tech world, as well as celebrity entrepreneurs like Steven P. Jobs of Apple and Mr. Zuckerberg who make products that students use every day. &quot;

One of the first tasks for our new summer intern, Joshua Eckroth (who isolated the cause), is to improve the software's robustness to similar events, before next week's news is published.

* Now that the automated NewsFinder service is working, we are working to improve it. The first thing is to extend the breadth of the stories that the program finds interesting and relevant. Stories about robots are good, but there's much more to AI. One difficulty is that the popular press publishes many more stories about robots than any other part of AI. (We just don't see screaming headlines like "The Ontologies are Coming!") Suggestions welcome.

* For information about the NewsFinder program see [[AITopics/AINewsProcedure| '''Details about the NewsFinder program''']]. Details are described in our July, 2011 paper for IAAI listed there.

Early work in AI, in areas such as story understanding and commonsense reasoning, tried to tackle the problem head on, but ultimately failed for three main reasons. First, methods for representing and reasoning with uncertain information were not well understood; second, systems could not be grounded in real experience, without first solving AI-complete problems of vision or language understanding; and third, there were no well-defined, meaningful tasks against which to measure progress.

After decades of work on the “bits and pieces” of artificial intelligence, we are now at a time when we are well-poised to make serious progress on the goal of building systems that understand human experience. Each of the previous barriers is weakened ...

Intelligent technology [can be used] to support elders with cognitive decline. …. Research challenges abound, and in designing technology to support an aging population, there are compelling reasons to employ a number of different AI technologies, including plan generation and execution monitoring, reasoning under uncertainty, machine learning, natural-language processing, and robotics and machine vision.
