The Twenty-Fourth AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence was held at the Westin Peachtree Plaza in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, from July 11–15, 2010. The proceedings were published by AAAI Press.
For three decades the AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence — AAAI's summer conference — has promoted theoretical and applied AI research as well as intellectual interchange among researchers and practitioners. The technical papers presented at this conference feature substantial, original research and practices, with special emphasis on constraints, satisfiability, and search; knowledge-based information systems; knowledge representation and reasoning; machine learning; multiagent systems; multidisciplinary topics; natural language processing; reasoning about plans, processes, and actions; reasoning under uncertainty; and robotics. Special tracks include artificial intelligence and bioinformatics; artificial intelligence and the web; challenges in artificial intelligence; integrated intelligence; and physically grounded artificial intelligence. The AAAI-10 conference chairs were Maria Fox (University of Strathclyde, UK), and David Poole (University of British Columbia, Canada). The AAAI Conference Committee Chair was Dieter Fox (University of Washington, USA). The conference also includes papers presented by senior AAAI members, new scientific and technical advances in research papers, doctoral consortium abstracts, and student abstracts.
This proceedings also includes the papers presented at the Innovative Applications of Artificial Intelligence Conference. The IAAI-10 chair was Nestor Rychtyckyj (Ford Motor Company, USA). The IAAI-10 cochair was Daniel Shapiro (ISLE, USA).
The IAAI conference traditionally consists of case studies of deployed applications with measurable benefits whose value depends on the use of AI technology, as well as emerging applications, which discuss efforts to apply AI tools, techniques, or methods to real world problems. Through the IAAI papers in this proceedings, AI researchers can learn about challenges of real-world domains, the utility of particular AI techniques for specific applications, and the difficulties, successes, and lessons learned in deploying AI applications. Included also, this year for the first time, are papers from the First Annual AAAI Symposium on Education Advances in AI. EAAI-10 provided a venue for researchers and educators to discuss pedagogical issues and share resources related to teaching AI and using AI in education.
The symposium was chaired by Mehran Sahami (Stanford University, USA).
Both conferences and the symposium are sponsored by the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence.
