Agent Theories, Architectures, and Languages

The Eighth International Workshop on Agent Theories, Architectures, and Languages (ATAL-2001) will be held on August 1-3, 2001 in Seattle, USA.
The ATAL-2001 workshop series aims to bring together researchers interested in the theory and practice of agent technology. Topics of interests will include : theories of agency, software architectures for intelligent agents, methodologies and programming languages for realizing agents, and software tools for applying and evaluating agent systems. One of the strengths of the ATAL workshop series is its emphasis on the synergies between theories, infrastructures, architectures, methodologies, formal methods, and languages.

Intelligent Agents VII

This book is based on the seventh workshop on Agent Theories, Architectures, and Languages, ATAL '99, held in Boston, MA, USA in July 1999. The 21 revised full papers included were selected from a total of 71 submissions during two rounds of reviewing. The book is divided into topical sections on agent theories; agent development tools and platforms; models of agent communication and coordination; autonomy and models of agent coordination; agent languages; and planning, decision making, and learning. This state-of-the-art survey is essential reading for anyone interested in agent technology. The book is published on July 20, 2001.

Get your vitamins from your T-shirt

Fuji Spinning Company, a Japanese company, says people will soon be able to get their daily dose of Vitamin C simply by wearing a T-shirt. It has developed a fibre containing a chemical called pro-vitamin, which turns into Vitamin C on contact with human skin.
A T-shirt made out of the fibre - called V-up - would have the equivalent vitamin content of two lemons and remain effective after 30 washes.

For a trendy home

The HomePlug Powerline Alliance, an industry consortium (Cisco Systems, Intel, Motorola, Hewlett-Packard, France Telecomů) established to provide a forum for the development of an open specification of home powerline networking products and services, has announced the completion and release of its much-anticipated first generation high-speed powerline networking specification.
Alliance members will be able to develop interoperable products that will allow PCs, peripherals and other information appliances to connect via every home power outlet. HomePlug compliant products will be available to consumers beginning in the Fall of 2001.

Isamu: humanoid robot

Kawanda Industries has developed a humanoid robot called "Isamu". It is 1.5 m in height, weighs 55 kg, and has 32 degrees of freedom.
The robot can walk up and down 25-cm high steps. Its hand grippers are installed with touch sensors and each hand can lift objects weighing up to 2 kg. With two-camera stereo graphics input, the robot can recognize pre-entered human faces. Kawada Industries plans to enhance the business of "human-interactive motion control". Some applications for this technology are mechanical systems for construction, disaster situation, handicapped aids, rehabilitation and training, and amusement.
