Steven Vere (email@example.com) is a Sr. Staff Scientist at
the Lockheed AI Center in Palo Alto, where he is co-PI for the
Autonomous Agent project. Homer, the autonomous agent, is an
integrated, mind-like AI artifact functioning in a simulated 2D
environment. The agent's faculties include limited natural
language communication, temporal planning and reasoning, plan
execution and replanning, episodic memory and reflection, and
symbolic perception. (See Computational Intelligence, 2/90, and
an article on integrated AI in the 12/91 Scientific American.)
Steve's research has included inductive learning at UIllinois and
temporal planning at JPL, after getting a Ph.D. in CS from UCLA.
He also wrote the article on Planning in the AI Encyclopedia.
John Dinsmore (firstname.lastname@example.org) has done research in
NLP, knowledge representation, cognitive science, and linguistics.
He has just published Partitioned Representations: a Study in
Mental Representation, Language Processing and Linguistic
Structure (Kluwer), and has edited The Symbolic and Connectionist
Paradigms: Closing the Gap (Lawrence Erlbaum), to appear early
next year. John received his Ph.D. in Linguistics at UCSD, then
taught CS at SIU-C for 7 years. He also organized two conferences
of the Midwest AI and Cognitive Science Society. John is looking
for an industrial research position. He is also seeking other
computer people interested in business with Eastern Europe and
the Soviet Union, especially within the Baltic countries.
