Modular Construction of Humanlike Intelligence
Papers from the AAAI Workshop
Kristinn R. Thórisson, Hannes Vilhjalmsson, and Stacy Marsella, Cochairs
Building intelligent systems that can collaborate and interact socially with people requires integrating numerous technologies in complex ways. For the AI 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 interest in humanoid agents and robots for the home, the push for creating well-rounded intelligent beings makes the issue of integration increasingly relevant.
This workshop features papers describing work on the theoretical as well as practical issues of integrating broad human-like skills into working systems, be it physical robots or virtual agents, and work that evaluates current and past architectural efforts towards creating such systems.
