Can machines think?

"2001" was probably one of the first books to explore the concept of artificial intelligence, at a time when the concept was both unfamiliar, and a little scary. But new research over the past few decades has led to an avalanche of new discoveries and inventions that harness cheaper computing power to make artificial intelligence less of a fantasy, and more of a reality.

Now, if only someone could come up with a way to force-feed some of this intelligence to our revered political leaders - but that's another story...

We're not too sure how keen we are on toasters that talk, cars that drive themselves, and robots that do our every bidding - but in the interests of our readers [the things we do for you guys! :-)], we thought we'd take a look at the current state of the AI union. And so, we've compiled a list of some of the most interesting artificial intelligence Web sites around, and pointed you to some sites that are sure to set you thinking!

Take it away...

The BioRobotic Vision Laboratory
http://cvs.anu.edu.au/bioroboticvision/

We'll start with the BioRobotic Vision Laboratory, a lab that conducts research into insect vision, navigation and cognition, and uses these principles to devise algorithms for machine vision, and novel kinds of autonomous, visually-guided robots. They've already designed and built a corridor-following robot and an obstacle-avoiding robot - movies are available on the Web site.
