I thought that most people here would be interested to know that the
project I mentioned here last week that would at this year's Young
Scientist Exhibition, entitled "Artificial Intelligence: Future or Fable?"
ended up winning this year's Nortel Networks Award for Best Use of
Information Technology at the Exhibition.
The centre-piece of the project was a Linux program, using the Amiga
emulator for a graphical front-end, which demonstrated some very
elementary learning; the idea was for the three project members to come up
with our very own learning routine.
Our conclusion was that if three seventeen year olds can come up with a
program that learns, then the best computer scientists in the world can
and will be able to do an awful lot better. Some form of artificial
intelligence is definitely part of our future!
I believe fellow list-member Emmanuel Stone's project also won a prize,
but I can't remember now exactly what.
