Projects sorted alphabetically by name. With time this collection of software will be a repository of modules (think LEGO bricks) for multi-functional, broad AI systems — software will be flagged by its authors according to how modularized and pluggable it is (this feature is under development). Current projects fall under one or more of our categories: Action Management, Cogitation, Consumables, Generation & Planning, Interactive Systems, Multimodal Perception, Unimodal Perception, and Motion Control [more].

AAAI-05 Workshop on Modular Construction of Human-Like Intelligence
   AAAI05ModularWorkshop    Wiki    Forum
Building intelligent systems that can collaborate and interact socially with people requires integrating numerous technologies in complex ways. For the A.I. researcher such integration can involve anything from connecting multiple computers and programming in multiple languages, to integrating several diverse theoretical models of perception, communication, planning and action. With a rising inter [more...]

Behavior Markup Language
   BML    Wiki    Forum
Other Sectors: Sector 1
This project is part of an international effort to unify a multimodal behavior generation framework for Embodied Conversational Agents (ECAs). We propose a three stage model we call SAIBA where the stages represent intent planning, behavior planning and behavior realization. A Function Markup Language (FML), describing intent without referring to physical behavior, mediates between the first two s [more...]

Low Performance Knowledge Base
   lpkb    Wiki    Forum
A knowledge base spanning common sense. Over 10,000 axioms, where each axiom is made of triples. The knowledge was based on a subset of the Open Mind corpus. The knowledge base is divided into three hundred contexts. Inference is carried out by spreading activation to other axioms with the same triple(s) and a simple threshold based on the number of triples in an axiom.
