We develop knowledge-based technologies that allow humans and computers to deal better with the artificial world that surrounds us.
Boi Faltings has been elected to the executive council of the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI).
Team Beau Rivage from LIA (Arnaud Jutzeler, Mirko Katanic and Jason Li) have won the 2013 Angry Birds AI Competition (as seen from the Wall Street Journal) at the 23rd International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI'13) in Beijing, China. The second and third places went to teams from the European Space Agency and the University of Wisconsin.
Swissnoise (http://www.swissnoise.ch/), developed by Florent Garcin, has been shown to achieve remarkable prediction accuracy and will be presented at the 26th Conference on Innovative Applications of Artificial Intelligence this July.
Goran Radanovic has developed another version of the robust Bayesian Truth Serum that is now applicable to continuous signals such as sensor readings and will present this result at the 28th Conference of the AAAI this July.
Marina Boia and Claudiu Musat have used crowdsourcing to derive a context-dependent sentiment lexicon and shown how to use this to achieve dramatically improved accuracy on sentiment classification tasks. The result is published in papers at the World Wide Web conference, at the Conference of the AAAI, and others.
In the Opensense project, Arnaud Jutzeler and Jason Li shown how Gaussian modeling improves the accuracy of a sensor-derived map by up to 50%, a result that will be presented at the 28th Conference of the AAAI this July.
