ShakeysA large crowd of experts in artificial intelligence gathered around the AAAI Video Competition Award Ceremony before catching their flights, or enjoying one last night in Québec City. The competition aims to spread the word about research and applications in AI through exciting educational videos. For this eighth edition, co-chaired by Mauro Birattari and me, 22 videos were submitted, 14 were accepted, and 5 received awards based on peer review. Videos of researchers singing Michael Jackson’s Thriller, robot dogs, neural networks, telepresence robots for the disabled, and insight into HRI had the crowd laughing and cheering. Since some of the winners were not there to receive the mythical Shakey awards, named after the famous robot from Stanford, we also viewed some cute acceptance speeches delivered by robots. We’ve added all the videos below, and in our YouTube playlist. Keep an eye out for next year’s edition in Austin Texas!

How robots and bubbles could soon help clean up underwater litter

Everyone loves to visit the seaside, whether to enjoy the physical benefits of an exhilarating swim or simply to relax on the beach and catch some sun. But these simple life affirming pleasures are easily ruined by the presence of litter, which if persistent can have a serious negative impact on both the local environment and economy. However, help is at hand to ensure the pristine nature of our coastlines.
