- The Sixth International Conference on the Simulation of Adaptive Behavior
- 11 - 15 September 2000, Paris, France
- The purpose of this conference is to bring together researchers in neurosciences, ethology, cybernetics, artificial intelligence, robotics, and related fields to improve our understanding of the behaviors and underlying mechanisms that allow animals and, potentially, robots to adapt and survive in uncertain environments, and to simulate those mechanisms in robots and autonomous synthetic systems.

People and organizations
- Learn how you can create software which is easy to maintain and evolve using Adaptive Programming (AP).
- LEGO MINDSTORMS lets you to design and program real robots that do what you want them to. You can create everything from a light-sensitive intruder alarm to a robotic rover that can follow a trail, move around obstacles, and even duck into dark corners.

"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.
- 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.
