Cognitive Assistant that Learns and Organizes
We all know Siri, a personal assistant on iPhone. What is less known is that Siri was developed through Cognitive Assistant that Learns and Organizes (CALO) project led by SRI within DARPA’s Personalized Assistant that Learns (PAL) program, the largest-known artificial intelligence project in U.S. This projects have goals that go beyond what Siri can do:
SRI International is leading the development of new software that could revolutionize how computers support decision-makers. The software, which will learn by interacting with and being advised by its users, will handle a broad range of interrelated decision-making tasks that have in the past been resistant to automation. It will have the capability to engage in and lead routine tasks, and to assist when the unexpected happens.
Perhaps the results will resemble the Knowledge Navigator concept.
