Previously we posted an interview with Kristinn R. Thórisson, Director of IIIM, on the famed Robots Podcast show. Here is another invited interview on Robots Podcasts’ 50th episode anniversary special. Several interesting members of the AI community are included in this episode, as noted on the Robots Podcast website:
In today’s episode we speak with Jean-Christophe Zufferey on flying robots, Dan Kara on the robotics market, Kristinn Thórisson on AI, Andrea Thomaz on human robot interactions, Terry Fong on space robotics and Richard Jones on nano robots.
If you’d like to fast forward to Thorisson’s interview, it begins at about 29:30 into the show.
In 2005 a group of students founded Iceland’s first AI society; the Icelandic Society for Intelligence Research (ISIR). Among their efforts was a wiki-website called ISIRWiki intended for collecting information on AI; the website grew fast and quickly became the most comprehensive online resource for Icelandic information on AI.
Now we are pleased to announce that IIIM has offered to host ISIRWiki. The ISIRWiki is a great asset to the Icelandic AI community, aiding and documenting both academic and industrial work in this area. It is now back online and viewable on the ISIR website.
