Vulcan Inc.'s Project Halo is a multi-staged effort to create a Digital Aristotle, an application that will encompass much of the world's scientific knowledge and be capable of applying sophisticated problem-solving to answer novel questions. Vulcan envisions two primary roles for the Digital Aristotle: as a tutor to instruct students in the sciences, and… (More)
The Halo Pilot, a six-month effort to evaluate the state-of-the-art in applied Knowledge Representation and Reasoning (KRR) systems, collaboratively developed a taxonomy of failures with the goal of creating a common framework of metrics against which we could measure inter-and intra-system failure characteristics of each of the three Halo knowledge… (More)
At the University of Washington, a capstone design project to help artists market their craft, taught students valuable, cross-cultural collaboration skills while providing evidence of the local and global positive impacts of computing. In this project, which took place in the context of a year-long course focusing on technology for low-income regions, a… (More)
