June 2006: links and notes concerning: energy-autonomous robots; massively parallel computation by chemical diffusion and reaction; immunocomputing for ballistic-intrusion detection, epidemiology, and other applications; equivalence between Hopfield neural nets and non-monotonic inference; combining neural networks with category theory and colimits; formalising metaphor as optimal blending with category theory and semiotic morphisms; synaesthesia.
May 2006: Functional programming in robotics; A blog with much info on functional programming and other matters; Links on how to do research; Neural-net-controlled helicopter, with gun.
April 2006: A meander through various topics: mainly image processing, language, and data presentation. Also a note on the 2006 Game Developers' Conference.
March 2006: Negative representations of information: artificial immune systems for intruder detection and other tasks; and negative databases for privacy.
February 2006: An AI Miscellany. Links to serious and humorous pages, including common-sense reasoning, insect models for scheduling, and genetic algorithms in Linux and Postgres.
