The six-day Remote Agent Experiment (RAX) on the Deep Space 1 mission will be the first time that an artificially intelligent agent will control a NASA spacecraft. Successful completion of this experiment will open the way for AI-based autonomy technology on future missions. An important validation objective for RAX is implementation of a credible(More)
We describe Slate, a logic-based, robust interactive reasoning system that allows human “pilots” to harness an ensemble of intelligent agents in order to construct, test, and express various sorts of natural argumentation. Slate empowers students and professionals in the business of producing argumentation, e.g., mathematicians, logicians, intelligence(More)
Introduction Much sponsored research in our lab either falls under or intersects with machine reading. In this short paper we give an encapsulated presentation of some of the research in question, leaving aside, for the most part, the considerable detailed technical information that underlies our work. Demonstrations of our technology will be provided at(More)
The Remote Agent is a software set for sophisticated monitoring and control of complex systems. Flight validated as an experiment on the Deep Space One spacecraft, it has been repackaged as the foundation for process control in space-based optical interferometry applications. Two main elements of the Remote Agent autonomy architecture, Livingstone and the(More)
With respect to genuine cognitive faculties, present synthetic characters inhabiting online virtual worlds are, to say the least, completely impaired. Current methods aimed at the creation of “immersive” virtual worlds only avatars and NPCs the illusion of mentality and, as such, will ultimately fail. Like behaviorism, this doomed approach focuses only on(More)
We describe provability-based semantic interoperability (PBSI), a framework transcending syntactic translation that enables robust, meaningful, knowledge exchange across diverse information systems. PBSI is achieved through translation graphs that capture complex ontological relationships, and through provability-based queries. We work through an example of(More)
This Blue Sky presentation focuses on a major shift toward a notion of “ambient intelligence” that transcends general applications targeted at the general population. The focus is on highly personalized agents that accommodate individual differences and changes over time. This notion of Extended Ambient Intelligence (EAI) concerns adaptation(More)
