Coming Up in the Winter Issue
Catch Up on Events!
A plethora of workshop, competition, and conference reports on AI have come in during
the past months. To accommodate the accumulated backlog, we will be devoting much
of the winter issue to publishing them.
Place Your Bets!
The AI Bookie column will document highlights from AI Bets, an online forum for the creation of adjudicatable predictions and bets about the future of AI. While it is easy to make
a prediction about the future, this forum was created to help researchers craft predictions
whose accuracy can be clearly and unambiguously judged when they come due. The bets
will be documented on line, and regularly in this publication in a new column, The AI
Bookie. We encourage bets that are rigorously and scientifically argued. We discourage
bets that are too general to be evaluated, or too specific to an institution or individual.
The goal is not to continue to feed the media frenzy and pundit predictions about AI, but
rather to curate and promote bets whose outcomes will provide useful feedback to the scientific community.
AI Research in Germany!
The worldwide AI column for winter will feature an in-depth look at a German AI research
focus: hybrid reasoning for intelligent systems.
