DARPA and RoboCup
"DARPA Selects SRI International to Lead Development of PLATO, a Machine Learning System that Could Launch a New Field of Research". What is PLATO? "The PLATO system will be designed to accept natural instruction, determine why it is being told this information, reason about the implication of the instruction in the context of what it already knows, and reflect upon it to further refine it when necessary. The highly modular PLATO system will be accessible to anyone interested in trying out new learning modules. Researchers and developers can choose to replace single components or the entire system". Apparently, RoboCup soccer will be one of the testbeds of PLATO, and I think this should be interesting to RoboCupers like me.
