  • A Survey of Auctions 8/4/99 Who points to it? 22 - One of the best ways to allocate goods and/or resources is to sell them using free market techniques and ideas. Anauction is an excellent method of distributing goods to those who value them most highly. Auctions, however, are farmore complex than most people realize.Agorics, Inc. has developed a series of articles explaining different auction types and some of the issues important indetermining whether to use auctions and, if so, which kind. What exactly is an auction? You may think you alreadyknow. Then again . . .

  • When will computer hardware match the human brain? 2/8/00 Who points to it? 19 - Hans Moravec, J of Transhumanism, 1998, v1 -- This paper describes how the performance of AI machines tends to improve at the same pace that AI researchers getaccess to faster hardware. The processing power and memory capacity necessary to match general intellectualperformance of the human brain are estimated. Based on extrapolation of past trends and on examination of technologiesunder development, it is predicted that the required hardware will be available in cheap machines in the 2020s.

  • Ontology Development 101: A Guide to Creating Your First Ontology 6/9/01 Who points to it? 28 - Natalya Fridman Noy and Deborah L. McGuinness. ``Ontology Development 101: A Guide to Creating Your First Ontology''. StanfordKnowledge Systems Laboratory Technical Report KSL-01-05 and Stanford Medical Informatics Technical Report SMI-2001-0880,March 2001. Ontologies have become core components of many large applications yet the training material has not kept pace with the growing interest.This paper addresses the issues of why one would build an ontology and presents a methodology for creating ontologies based ondeclarative knowledge representation systems. It leverages the two authors experiences building and maintaining ontologies in a number ofontology environments including Protege-2000, Ontolingua, and Chimaera. It presents the methodology by example utilizing a tutorialwines knowledge base example. While it is aimed at users of frame-based systems, it can be useful for building ontologies in anyobject-centered system.

  • Generic User Modeling Systems 7/6/01 Who points to it? 36 - Alfred Kobsa, Generic User Modeling Systems, User Modeling andUser-Adapted Interaction 11, 49-63, Kluwer, 2001. The paper reviewsthe development of generic user modeling systems over the past twentyyears. It describes their purposes, their services withinuser-adaptive systems, and the different design requirements forresearch prototypes and commercially deployed servers. It discussesthe architectures that have been explored so far, namely shell systems that form part of the application, central server systems that communicatewith several applications, and possible future user modeling agents that physically follow the user.
