Forwarding a message from Adam Cheyer, who is hosting the presentation 
by Didier Guzzoni (another ex-VerticalNet colleague) at SRI  this coming 
Wednesday 2004.09.08 4pm in Menlo Park, CA.    (01)

The abstract (below) sounds really exciting ... I'm sure the talk (& 
demo?) will be even more so. Those who are in the San Francisco Bay Area 
may find this interesting enough to show up there.    (02)

Regards.  -ppy

>Active : A unified framework for activity recognition and execution
>The goal of our research is to provide a unified, visual, standards-
>based framework for developing intelligent systems incorporating 
>numerous AI techniques. As an implementation of such framework, our

>recognition and execution. Active is based on the concept of active

>events (data) and time constraints. Within Active facts are 
>represented as first order logic predicates enhanced with functional 
>information such as time stamp, lifespan, relevance or ownership. 
>Using such facts, processing elements (concepts) can exchange 
>information and store local data in private or shared contexts. 
>Active is evaluated by creating a "library of templates" to model AI 
>systems. Templates will be created to provide natural language 
>processing (activity recognition), multimodal fusion, dynamic 
>presentation (using reactive planning) and plan execution.
