Second Symposium on Adaptive Agents and Multi-Agent Systems

The symposium will be held on 2-5 April 2002 at London. UK. Its goal is to increase awareness and interest in adaptive agent research, encourage collaboration between machine learning experts and agent system experts, and give a representative overview of current research in the area of adaptive agents. The Symposium on Adaptive Agents and Multi-Agent Systems will serve as an inclusive forum for the discussion on ongoing or completed work in both theoretical and practical issues.

A robot guarddog

Sanyo has released a robot watchdog equipped with a camera to scan your home for intruders and beam the pictures to your third-generation mobile phone. Called “T7S Type 2”, it can connect its camera and its speakers to the mobile phone of the user. When an intruder is detected, the user can talk to him trough the robot dog. The T7S Type 2 will be available for March 2003.

A robotic capsule to explore the human body

RF System lab., a camera manufacturer from Japan, has announced the world's first, battery-free capsule camera called “Norika3”. Traditional endoscope diagnosis has always been painful and uncomfortable, though it is now changing as the take-in type endoscopic capsule camera is painless, just like taking a pill for cold. It is therefore expected that the capsule camera will become the mainstream method of endoscopic diagnosis in several years. Koichiro Harayama, the laboratory chief of RF SYSTEM lab., comments, “Images and operation signals would be connected by telephone lines, and doctors could freely join telemedicine from overseas”.

The age of smart machines

The director of MIT's Artificial Intelligence Lab Rodney Brooks says the age of smart, mobile machines is already beginning. You just have to know where to find them, he said. In the not-too-distant future, a lot more people may be living with technologies that Brooks's lab is developing. To help make pervasive computing a reality, researchers in his lab and MIT's Laboratory for Computer Science are developing the requisite embeddable and wearable devices, interfaces and communications protocols
