;;; **************************************************************** ;;; Answers to Questions about Artificial Intelligence ************* ;;; **************************************************************** ;;; Written by Amit Dubey, Ric Crabbe, and Mark Kantrowitz ;;; ai_5.faq If you think of questions that are appropriate for this FAQ, or would like to improve an answer, please send email to the maintainers. Parts 5 and 6 of the FAQ are now under heavy construction. The FTP & WWW resources have been combined, since both are browser accessible these days. We're also pruning the entries to sites that include information other than whatever project is being done at that University, etc. Part 5 (WWW & FTP Resources): [5-0] Research Index (nee Citeseer) [5-1] Weblogs, repositories, web directories and communities not aimed primarily at researchers [5-2] Repositories and web directories aimed primarily at researchers [5-3] Web books (textbooks and otherwise) [5-4] AI Bibliographies available by FTP and WWW [5-5] Technical Reports available by FTP and WWW [5-6] Technical Reports for/by undergraduate students [5-7] Where can I get a machine readable dictionary, thesaurus, and other text corpora? [5-8] Where can I get training sets for machine learning algorithms? [5-9] What on-line journals are there? Search for [#] to get to question number # quickly. ---------------------------------------------------------------- Subject: [5-0] Research Index (nee Citeceer) http://citeseer.nj.nec.com/cs "ResearchIndex is a scientific literature digital library that aims to improve the dissemination and feedback of scientific literature, and to provide improvements in functionality, usability, availability, cost, comprehensiveness, efficiency, and timeliness. Rather than creating just another digital library, ResearchIndex provides algorithms, techniques, and software that can be used in other digital libraries. ResearchIndex indexes Postscript and PDF research articles on the Web..." http://citeseer.nj.nec.com/cs Research index (though most people still call it citeseer) is the currently best way to find published papers AND TRACK CITATIONS. It is so cool, it's in the FAQ twice. UPDATE 4/1/04: ResearchIndex has been sick, and updates stopped. It has been moved to: http://citeseer.ist.psu.edu/cis where hopefully it will continue. ---------------------------------------------------------------- Subject: [5-1] Repositories and directories not aimed primarily at researchers AI Toolkit: The AI Toolkit is an educational software package developed to train future and current scientists and engineers on Artificial Intelligence methods, with a specific focus on soft computing techniques for robotic applications. The software is designed to be completely user-friendly, and provide hands-on interactive lessons to enhance understanding and knowledge of these powerful methods. In addition, the multicultural interfaces promote a universal atmosphere to enhance learning. The AI Toolkit is now freely available for download at: http://www.openchannelsoftware.com/projects/AI_Toolkit For more information, visit: http://aitoolkit.jpl.nasa.gov AI Topics: http://www.aaai.org/Pathfinder/html/welcome.html Presented by AAAI, AI Topics is a "...web site provided ... for students, teachers, journalists, and everyone who would like to learn more about what artificial intelligence is, and what AI scientists do. [Their] goal is to offer a limited number of authoritative, non-technical resources that [they] have organized and annotated to provide you with meaningful access to basic information about the AI universe. Each of the AI Topics (see the navigation buttons to the left) will lead you to online and in-print sources of information. There has been an explosion in the number of Websites that catalog locations of AI information in a Yahoo-style directory. Although they often duplicate functionality, in the interest of fairness, I will list all the ones I know about here. AboutAI.com: http://www.aboutai.net/ It is a second generation portal and a successor to the former ai.about.com. aboutAI.Net contains dozens of AI-related essays and thousands of Web links. It will be focused on the technical side, describing the implementation of a wide range of AI techniques. Site actively uses data mining techniques for collaboration filtering, information retrieval, automatic classification of retrieved information, etc. Kurzweilai.Net: http://www.kurzweilai.net An entertaining mix of flashy demos and interesting essays on AI, many by important poeple in the field. Much philosophical discussion, less hard-core technical discussion. MAKHFI A site dedicated to Neural Networks, including some open source tools that they developed. http://www.makhfi.com The site is still not complete, but we are fully committed to make it "the" resource site for ANN. Neuron AI Directory http://www.neuron.co.uk Neural Network Information in Polish: http://www.neuron.of.pl Generation 5: http://www.generation5.org "Generation5 is aimed at presenting a website that will educate the viewer on Artificial Intelligence -- whatever the level of expertise. We have essays on the applications and history of AI for those unfamiliar, to essays on programming and philosophy, all the way to full blown mathematically-orientated essays on genetic algorithms and neural networks. Generation5 prides itself also in its interviews sections with exclusive interviews from top AI scientists like Marvin Minsky, Craig Reynolds, Roger Schank, Andre LaMothe and many others. Generation5 also has a comprehensive collection of original programs, all with source included. Demonstration programs like image recognizors, number recognizors, cellular automata creators, NLP demonstrator and more. All programs have an accompanying essay describing the workings of the programs. The aim of Generation5 is not only to educate the viewer, but to allow the viewer to contribute to further other people's knowledge. They can do this through the discussion boards, voting systems, and soon through AI Solutions (a scheme to submit code - with a accompanying monthly competition)." Yahoo Clubs: Yahoo maintains a number of AI clubs. There is the general AI Group, an online community that discusses AI (a resource for beginners). Their website is: http://clubs.yahoo.com/clubs/artificialintelligencegroup There is also a resource for amateur robot enthusiasts at: http://clubs.yahoo.com/clubs/theroboticsclub Pentomino Site: http://home.planetinternet.be/~odettedm Student run site at T.I.D. Ronse Belgium on searching Pentomino spaces. ---------------------------------------------------------------- Subject: [5-2] Repositories aimed primarily for researchers CMU AI Repository: The CMU Artificial Intelligence Repository was established by Carnegie Mellon University to contain public domain and freely distributable software, publications, and other materials of interest to AI researchers, educators, students, and practitioners. The AI Repository currently contains more than a gigabyte of material and is growing steadily. The AI Repository is accessible from: http://www.cs.cmu.edu/Web/Groups/AI/html/repository.html ACT-R Faq: http://acs.ist.psu.edu/act-r-faq/ "ACT-R is a proposed unified theory of cognition realised as a production system. It is a unified theory of cognition, in the spirit proposed by Newell (1990, Unified theories of cognition, Harvard, Cambridge, MA), in that it is designed to predict human behavior by processing information and generating intelligent behavior itself." Soar Faq: http://acs.ist.psu.edu/soar-faq/soar-faq.html "Soar is used by AI researchers to construct integrated intelligent agents and by cognitive scientist for cognitive modeling. It can basically be considered in three different ways: 1. A theory of cognition. As such it provides the principles behind the implemented Soar system. 2. A set of principles and constraints on (cognitive) processing. Thus, it provides a (cognitive) architectural framework, within which you can construct cognitive models. In this view it can be considered as an integrated architecture for knowledge-based problem solving, learning and interacting with external environments. 3. An AI programming language." Fast Replanning Methods: Techniques for replaning under plan failure without starting from scratch: http://www.cc.gatech.edu/fac/Sven.Koenig/fastreplanning.html Artificial Life Online: Sponsored by MIT Press and the Santa Fe Institute, Artificial Life Online is intended to be a central information collection and distribution site on the Internet for any and all aspects of the Artificial Life endeavor. A special feature of the BBS is a collection of 40 or so local newsgroups dedicated to a wide variety of topics in Artificial Life. Artificial Life Online is accessible by World-Wide Web from http://alife.santafe.edu/ Case based reasoning: http://www.ai-cbr.org/ ai-cbr aims to provide a comprehensive information base to Case-Based Reasoning academics and commercial developers. Through the dissemination of information it is hoped a stronger world-wide community of people interested in Case-Based Reasoning will be fostered and the commercial use of Case-Based Reasoning will increase. (added to the FAQ 2/2/00) http://www.aic.nrl.navy.mil/~aha/research/case-based-reasoning.html A very complete list of resources including tutorials Consortium for Lexical Research: clr.nmsu.edu:/CLR/ [] Archive containing a variety of programs and data files related to natural language processing research, with a particular focus on lexical research.

Linguistic Data Consortium: The Linguistic Data Consortium was established to broaden the collection and distribution of speech and natural language data bases for the purposes of research and technology development in automatic speech recognition, natural language processing, and other areas where large amounts of linguistic data are needed. LDC corpora are the most commonly used in published research. Information about the LDC is at http://www.ldc.upenn.edu/ Free: On unix systems, /usr/dict/words is a fine word list. =========== The Moby Thesaurus (25,000 roots/1.2 million synonyms), Moby Words (560,000 entries), Moby Hyphenator (155,000 entries), and the Moby Part-of-Speech (214,000 entries), Moby Pronunciator (167,000 entries with IPA encoding, syllabification, and primary, secondary, and tertiary stress marks) and Moby Language (100,000 word word lists in five major world languages) lexical databases are available at: http://www.dcs.shef.ac.uk/research/ilash/Moby/ This was once commercial but is now in the public domain. [thanks to Robert Bechtel] =========== Roget's 1911 Thesaurus is available by anonymous FTP from the Consortium for Lexical Research clr.nmsu.edu:/CLR/lexica/roget-1911 [] It is also available from src.doc.ic.ac.uk:/literary/collections/project_gutenberg/roget11.txt.Z An old Webster's dictionary is in /text/dict/{DICT.Z,DICT.INDEX.Z}. Project Gutenberg also has Roget's 1911 Thesaurus. The Project Gutenberg archive is at mrcnext.cso.uiuc.edu:/pub/etext/. The Project Gutenberg archive collects public domain electronic books.

Two lists of common female first names (4967 names) and male first names (2924 names) are available for anonymous ftp from ftp.cs.cmu.edu:/user/ai/areas/nlp/corpora/names/ Read the file README first. Send mail to mkant@cs.cmu.edu for more information. A list of 110,000 English words (one per line, in ASCII) is available in the PD1:<MSDOS.LINGUISTICS> directory on SIMTEL20 as the files WORDS1.ZIP, WORDS2.ZIP, WORDS3.ZIP, and WORDS4.ZIP. Although the list is in MS-DOS files, it can easily be used on other machines (but first you'll have to unzip the files on a DOS machine). The list includes inflected forms of the words, such as plural nouns and the -s, -ed, and -ing forms of verbs; thus the number of lexical stems in the list is considerably smaller than the total number of word forms. These files are available via FTP from WSMR-SIMTEL20.ARMY.MIL []. SIMTEL20 files are mirrored on wuarchive.wustl.edu. The Collins English Dictionary encoded as a Prolog fact base is available from the Oxford Text Archive by anonymous ftp from ota.ox.ac.uk:/pub/ota/dicts/1192/ [] The Oxford Text Archive includes many other texts, dictionaries, thesauri, word lists, and so on, most of which are available for scholarly use and research only.

Chuck Wooters <wooters@icsi.berkeley.edu> has extracted the most likely pronunciation for each of about 6100 words in the hand-labeled TIMIT database, and made them available by anonymous ftp from ftp.icsi.berkeley.edu:/pub/speech/TIMIT.mostlikely.Z. A list of homophones from general American English is available by anonymous ftp from svr-ftp.eng.cam.ac.uk:/comp.speech/data/ as the file homophones-1.01.txt. To receive the list by email, send mail to Evan.Antworth@sil.org. The list was compiled by Tony Robinson. Sigurd P. Crossland <sig@seuss.vantage.gte.com> has been compiling a dictionary of English words, including most common American words, abbreviations, hyphenations, and even incorrect spellings. The most recent version is available by anonymous ftp from wocket.vantage.gte.com:/pub/standard_dictionary/dic-0394.tar.gz The tar file includes 31 text files, one for each word-length from 2 to 32. The compressed tar file takes up just over 4mb of space, and includes approximately 870,000 words. WordNet is an English lexical reference system based on current psycholinguistic theories of human lexical memory. It organizes nouns, verbs and adjectives into synonym sets corresponding to lexical concepts. The sets are linked by a variety of relations. Besides being of scientific interest, it makes a handy thesaurus. WordNet is available by anonymous ftp from clarity.princeton.edu:/pub/ If you retrieve a copy of wordnet by ftp, please send mail to wordnet@princeton.edu.
