Computer Robots Gather Intelligence

The US military is testing software robots that can identify targets and present them to commanders much more quickly than a human could.
The software, known as the Control of Agent-Based Systems or CoABS, uses artificially intelligent "agents" to sift through huge quantities of images and intelligence data to find viable targets.

LimeWire goes open source

LimeWire, the software package that enables individuals to search for and share computer files with anyone on the Internet, has decided to open itself up to developers by making its code open source.
By going open source, Lime Wire hopes to enable future Gnutella research and development projects to break new ground without the need to rewrite the core message passing and file sharing code.

Hollywood -vs- MusicCity, Kazaa and Grokster

Adding a new challenge to their list of legal attacks, the record industry and Hollywood studios have joined forces to sue MusicCity, Kazaa and Grokster, which together form one of the most popular file-trading networks to spring up in Napster's wake.
People using these systems can find movies still in theatres, such as "Planet of the Apes" and "Legally Blonde", as well as new releases by recording artists such as Bob Dylan and 'N Sync, a recording-industry trade group said in a release.
But unlike Napster, which eventually agreed to purge its system of copyrighted files in March after a long court battle, Morpheus, Grokster and Kazaa could prove harder to shut down, due to the lack of a centralized list of shareable files.

Artificial intelligence vs Terrorism

Intelligence analysis software being developed in the US could be used to predict future terrorist attacks, claims the research company that has developed it.
The software is called Knowledge Aided Retrieval in Activity Context (KARNAC) and uses "profiles" of different categories of terrorist attacks to seek out key components of possible events. When complete, they say it will be capable of sifting through and analysing existing databases of information, both public and private, and spotting suspicious patterns of activity.
