Artificial intelligence for transportation safety

Ottawa-based Precarn Inc. is asking Canadian researchers to come up with artificial intelligence systems for transportation safety and security following the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in the United States.
Artificial intelligence systems can help authorities better manage crises. For example, researchers at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh used intelligent agents to plan escape routes following a simulated terrorist attack in Kuwait City three years ago.

Napster: changing faces

Embattled song-swap company Napster on Wednesday said it plans to cut about 16 jobs out of its total work force of 104 people.
Napster attracted nearly 60 million users at its peak by letting people swap songs for free.
The service has been idle since July, however, due to technical glitches it faced while trying to comply with a court order barring it from letting people trade copyrighted material.
Napster is currently working to transform its service into a secure, membership-charging platform it plans to launch later this year.
