Would you like to access great AI software made by hundreds of developers? Would you like to contribute to the progress of AI by making your own software available to the AI community at large? This is the basic idea behind _MINDMAKERS.ORG_. We believe that if only a small portion of the community participates, progress in the field could nevertheless be significantly increased.
bq. The mission of MINDMAKERS.ORG is to further development of large integrated artificial intelligence systems, with a strong focus on real-time human-humanoid interaction, collaboration and human-like intelligence.

!AIR-small.png! Our first contribution to help achieve that vision is _OpenAIR_. OpenAIR is a powerful routing and messaging specification well-suited to handle semantic messaging between stand-alone software modules, across executables, operating systems and large systems of networked elements. This open and community-driven spec is designed by members of _MINDMAKERS_ with the needs of the AI community in mind. It is the natural next step after _CORBA_ and _KQML_.
h2. Why Join?
For the first time in history we have an opportunity to build machines that truly are in our own image. Frankly, that's exciting. While multinational corporations are building expensive robotic systems with limited action repertoirs, only a small group of people are actually working on the large-scale integration that needs to happen for us to create a rudimentary model of a working mind. We want these people to work more effectively together and we are also looking for new people to be part of making that happen. Join _MINDMAKERS_ and help make the dream of intelligent machines real.
