ELLIE is a psychologist, and a damned good one at that. Smile in a certain way, and she knows precisely what your smile means. Develop a nervous tic or tension in an eye, and she instantly picks up on it. She listens to what you say, processes every word, works out the meaning of your pitch, your tone, your posture, everything. She is at the top of her game but, according to a new study, her greatest asset is that she is not human.

Artificial Comedy in Other

In an attempt to understand the impact of appeal on talking characters our research experiments with character styles aiming to determine how visual, sound and interactive elements in design influence appeal. This research site is built around the premise that design in conversation is core to interaction.

Focusing on experimentation in content development for interactive consumption in popular culture and examining technical aspects of game design our research looks at appeal in entertainment design e.g. characterization, sound, and interactive design. We integrate research that examines popular trends in transmedia development and deployment. We incubate game research by working with unique visuals and game-play concepts that have a functionality to blend cinematic authorship with interactive entertainment. Our hypothesis is that with the appropriate manipulation of comical archetypes we can optimize their appeal and produce materials with wide popular appeal.

opencog in Developers

We're creating an open source framework for Artificial General Intelligence, intended to one day express general intelligence at the human level and beyond. That is: We're undertaking a serious effort to build a thinking machine.

As compared to most academic and industry AI research, the OpenCog project has a very different focus. We are not centrally concerned with building more accurate classification algorithms, or more efficient computer vision systems, or better language processing or information retrieval algorithms, etc. Neither are we centrally concerned with building a program that performs only one specific task like play chess, diagnose diseases, answer trivia questions, or drive a car. We are concerned with generic intelligence and the inter-related cognitive processes it entails.

Google lobbies to test self-driving cars in Matrix-style virtual world in AI News

Google lobbies to test self-driving cars in Matrix-style virtual world
21 August 2014, 12:00 am

Google has built a "Matrix-style" digital simulation of the entire Californian road system in which it is testing its self-driving cars - and is lobbying the state's regulators to certify them based on virtual rather than real driving. The extensive simulation - reminiscent of the virtual cities created for human captives in sci-fi blockbuster The Matrix - exists entirely inside computers at the company's Mountain View location, and the cars have so far virtually "driven" more than 4 million miles inside it, facing challenges just like those in the real world, such as lane-weaving motorists, wobbly cyclists and unpredictable pedestrians.

Does your computer know how you're feeling?
21 August 2014, 1:05 pm

Researchers have designed a computer program that can accurately recognize users’ emotional states as much as 87% of the time, depending on the emotion. The study combined -- for the first time -- two established ways of detecting user emotions: keystroke dynamics and text-pattern analysis.

Indiscrete Logic in General Project Discussion

Well, as I stated in my introduction on this board, I have discovered what I think is a new model for computation, and I think it would apply well to quantum computing. The document is 11 pages long, so I put it on another site with this link:

How To Compute Without Numeric Variables In A Non-Von Neumann Architecture

I'm probably gonna be called a "script kiddie" and "it's just a game!" and ridiculed for what I think is very difficult programming.

This document is pre-mature and I do not have a good introduction to it. Like I say at the bottom of the document, I would like to patent this and put it in the public domain. Any comments, good or bad, are welcome.

I desperately need help with this.

Delivery by drone
21 August 2014, 12:00 am

In the near future, the package that you ordered online may be deposited at your doorstep by a drone: Last December, online retailer Amazon announced plans to explore drone-based delivery, suggesting that fleets of flying robots might serve as autonomous messengers that shuttle packages to customers within 30 minutes of an order. To ensure safe, timely, and accurate delivery, drones would need to deal with a degree of uncertainty in responding to factors such as high winds, sensor measurement errors, or drops in fuel.
