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.
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.
Mindmakers v1.5 Underway—New Beta Testers Enter the Scene!
We have now begun work on version 1.5 of the Mindmakers website! Nearing a public version, we're pushing through with the help of new beta tester and (with hope) future users of the system!
Beta Feedback Tab Added to Top Menu
Special tab for easy access to beta feedback created.
Getting closer to private beta 1.2
A test news bulletin and reminder: we're getting closer to launching private beta 1.2.
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.
For over 50 years most AI researchers have been working on isolated parts of the intelligence problem. With plenty to do and highly disparate approaches, work has progressed without much collaboration between institutions. Now this is beginning to change. Advanced humanoid robot platforms and an increased interest in general intelligence press home the point that integrated skills are required to solve the general intelligence problem. In developing ntegrated AI systems, collaboration is key. The Mindmakers site gives any qualified researcher a space to host their projects. With full project management support, source control, wiki and forum, you are free to use all or some of these features, in a way that makes sense for you. Our members list is managed, to keep down the noise (read: irrelevant or low-quality projects). For this reason, please expect 1-2 days for approval, after you have signed up.
Uploading your AI project, software, course materials, art project, or paper to MINDMAKERS is easy: Create an account, create a project page, and then upload everything in a few easy steps.
