IJCAI Honors SRI’s Raymond Perrault with Donald E. Walker Distinguished Service Award - 2011-08-05
MENLO PARK, Calif. —July 18, 2011—In recognition for his substantial contributions and extensive service to the field of artificial intelligence, C. Raymond Perrault, Ph.D., director of SRI International’s Artificial Intelligence Center, was presented with the Donald E. Walker Distinguished Service Award today by the International Joint Conferences on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI) at its 2011 conference in Barcelona, Spain.
Introducing Siri... your personal iPhone assistant - 2010-03-18
Funded by DARPA and SRI International, computer scientists Adam Cheyer, Dag Kittlaus and Tom Gruber are working to bring military-grade artificial intelligence to mobile devices. Their invention is Siri, a personal, intelligent assistant on the iPhone that allows users to make verbal requests that Siri will process and then act upon, like scheduling appointments, buying movie tickets, and making dinner reservations.

CALO in the NYT: A Software Secretary That Takes Charge - 2008-12-13
Thomas D. Garvey, an artificial-intelligence researcher at SRI, said CALO passed an important milestone last week when it was used in a United States Army test of a command and control system at Fort Leavenworth, Kan.
Engelbart and the dawn of interacting computing - 2008-12-09
On December 9, 2008 (1 - 5:50 pm) at Stanford University's Memorial Auditorium, SRI International will present a commemorative 40th anniversary of this historic event. Join us to hear original participants recount what led up to the 1968 demo, the drama of the demonstration itself, and its impact—which no one could have imagined at the time. Learn about Doug Engelbart's vision to use computing to augment society's collective intellect and ability to solve the complex issues of our time.

The paper "Plans and Resource-Bounded Practical Reasoning," published in Computational Intelligence 4(4):349, 1988, has been voted a joint winner of the 2008 International Foundation for Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems (IFAAMAS) influential paper award. Authors are Michael Bratman, Stanford University; David Israel, Program Director in SRI's Artificial Intelligence Center (AIC); and Martha Pollack, formerly with the AIC and now at the University of Michigan.
AI and Special Ops Technology: EOD Tools - 2008-03-19
SRI International, an R&D organization based in Menlo Park, Calif., has been doing research and developing team-based systems in which large collections of robots work together on tasks. “One of these involves developing a framework for the coordination of one-hundred or more ground robots to search for suspicious objects and to do it in way that the collective behavior is greater than sum of its parts,” said Charlie Ortiz, program director in robotics in SRI’s artificial intelligence laboratory. Robotic actors in such a scenario require interoperability in the form of a common communications language, Ortiz emphasized. “Agents must be able to share information valuable to the mission if it is to succeed,” he said. Jointness, for Ortiz, is important when the separate services consider resource sharing. “If the services each have pools of robotic resources, they probably won’t be happy with them if they are working completely independently,” he said. “If they want to share resources, then you need to grapple with the notion of how they are to work together. If the Army needs 10 extra robots and the Marines can spare them, there should be some way to get help by borrowing.” But such a scenario is unlikely to succeed unless the two services have joint requirements and interoperable systems.
