The Intelligent Systems Demonstrations, sponsored by AAAI and held in conjunction with the Twenty-Third AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence, will be held July 13–17, 2008 in Chicago, Illinois.
The AAAI Intelligent Systems Demonstrations program showcases state-of-the-art AI implementations and provides AI researchers with an opportunity to show their research in action. Implemented intelligent systems allow us not only to experimentally validate AI research, but also to make AI research accessible to each other, to the broader scientific community, and to the public at large.
Researchers from all areas of AI were encouraged to submit proposals to demonstrate their systems. Submissions were evaluated on the basis of their innovation, relevance, scientific contribution, presentation, and usability, as well as potential logistical constraints. This program is primarily to encourage the early exhibition of research prototypes, but interesting mature systems and commercial products were also eligible (commercial sales and marketing activities are not appropriate in the Intelligent Systems Demonstration program, and should be arranged as part of the AAAI-08 Exhibits program). Demonstrations that can be used by the audience and/or that interact with the audience were particularly encouraged.
It is likely that this program will be part of a conference-wide poster and demonstration session one evening during the conference. Demonstration systems should be available during the entire session. Each accepted demonstration system must be attended by at least one knowledgeable representative (preferably an architect of the system) who will be available to answer in-depth technical questions at scheduled times.
If you have any questions or comments about the AAAI Intelligent Systems Demonstration program, we encourage you to address them to the program cochairs, Holger Hoos (University of British Columbia, firstname.lastname@example.org) and Michael Bowling (University of Alberta, email@example.com).
