A new artificial intelligence (AI) project in Israel. A national centre for artificial intelligence, which covers the fields of computer science, neurosciences and psychology, has been founded at the Weizmann Institute at Rehovot in Israel. The research team hopes to understand some of the facets of the human thought process and apply their results to the creation of machines which “can learn from experience”, “understand and speak a natural language”, and “assess situations”. The aim is to produce a machine with “Common sense”. Initially work will be carried out in vision capabilities (Professor Ullman), and the development of hardware and language for parallel processing. The institute will also conduct research into advanced robotics (Dr Flash) with a particular interest in manipulator kinematics and dynamics as well as trajectory planning.
