||Architectures for Intelligent
Systems, Using Fuzzy Control to Maximize Profits in Service Level
Management, Applying Machine Learning to Automated Information Graphics
Generation, and Machine Learning in a Multimedia Document Retrieval
Framework. This are refereed technical articles with substantial content
and references. The search engine allows searching IBM journals back
to 1957 with numerous articles on expert systems, neural networks,
Prolog, fuzzy logic, and many other topics. IBM also has a number
of cross-discipline institutes such as the Deep Computing Institute
Speaking of HAL, check out the Washington Post article A visual
Verbal Future (www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A56499-2002May8.html).
It discusses Ben Shneiderman's (University of Maryland) concept of
visual communication with a computer. Also, check out the Human-Computer
Interaction Lab presentations at www.cs.umd.edu/hcil/soh.
Yet Another AI Directory
has an AI section with 24 topics such as belief networks, agents,
machine learning, neural networks and knowledge representation as
well as a list of other AI resource links. If you go up the directory
(the 'eye' icon in the upper left corner) to the computer directory
and select "
more groups", you will find topics such
as robotics, speech, algorithms, and artificial life. This site currently
advertises 2.5 million links on various topics (1,700+ on AI related).
Another site of AI information is NewWave WorldSearch
dp.lisa/en/Computers/Artificial_Intelligence). Topics here
include neural networks, natural language, genetic programming, knowledge
representation, data mining, and a host of others.

It also has an excellent list of publication web sites (www.newstrove.com/

page is marginal at best, particularly for double world searches such
as "expert systems" and "neural networks." Even
using single or double quotes, the results were either great or very
