  • TechnoSphere

    • TechnoSphere? is a 3D virtual world that is accessed via the Internet.
    • It has a World Wide Web interface that allows people to construct artificial life-forms from component descriptions and place them in the world. The life-forms grow and evolve over time and regularly send messages, images and animations back to their creator by email.
  • InfoSpider (Arachnid)

    • by Filippo Menczer and Rik Belew, the University of California, San Diego.
    • The name stands for "Adaptive Retrieval Agents Choosing Heuristic Neighborhoods for Information Discovery."
    • The idea is based on ecology-inspired artificial life models in which a distributed population of intelligent information agents (infospiders) survives by searching and retrieving documents online, on behalf of the user, in networked information environments such as the Web.
  • Universal Information Ecosystems (UIE)

    • The Universal Information Ecosystems (UIE) proactive (EC) initiative is aimed at exploring and validating new technologies and scenarios that can turn the complex information infrastructure as it is emerging today into a rich, adaptive, responsive and truly open environment.

  • "ROBOKONEKO" (Kitten Robot)

    • The main aim of the CAM-Brain Project is to build/grow/evolve an artificial brain by 2003 with a billion artificial neurons. As an intermediate step, an artificial brain with 64,000 evolved neural network modules (each module has up to 1,152 neurons) evolved at electronic speeds inside special FPGA based hardware called a CBM (CAM-Brain Machine) is being developed. This brain will be used to control the behaviors of a kitten robot that is called Japanese "Robokoneko" (= robot child cat).
  • International Society of Information Fusion

    • Addresses the field of Multi-Sensor, Multi-Source Information Fusion.
  • Universal Information Ecosystems (UIE) brokerage service

    • UIE is a brokerage service has been set up to facilitate the forming of partnerships for the Call on the Universal Information Ecosystems proactive initiative.ization and automation. Neugents are able to detect sophisticated patterns in large datasets using advanced self-learning and pattern recognition technologies. These technologies grew out of efforts to understand how the human brain learns and organizes information. Neugents learn, they adapt and they get smarter the more you use them.
  • Webmind

    • from IntelliGenesis
    • Webmind is a Java-based software system that evolves its own "digital intuition," which it uses to pose and answer questions. It deals with textual and numerical information on an equal footing, freely making generalizations that span different types of data.
