The AIS project is no longer active at the KSL (June, 2003).
We are investigating adaptive intelligent systems -- AI systems
that coordinate perception, reasoning and action to pursue multiple goals
while functioning autonomously in dynamic environments. After spending many
years investigating agents with deep knowledge and powerful reasoning
capabilities, our more recent work focuses on more rounded agents
that complement their intelligence with human qualities, such as identity,
personality, affect, relationship, and embodiment.
Former project areas have included:
- Virtual Theater Project -- Agents embodied
as life-like characters for applications related to children, learning,
communication, entertainment and the arts.
- BB1 -- Software system for building
- Guardian -- An intelligent agent for
monitoring of intensive-care patients.
- AIbots --
Agents to control the behavior of mobile robots performing office tasks.
- Patient Advocate -- Agent to
consult with individuals managing their own medical conditions.
