Submission + - Researchers create AI 4-year-old in Second Life (itnews.com.au)

schliz writes: Researchers from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have successfully created an artificially intelligent four-year-old capable of reasoning about his beliefs to draw conclusions in a manner that matches human children his age.

The technology, which runs on the institute's supercomputing clusters, will be put to use in immersive training and education scenarios. Researchers envision futuristic applications like those seen in Star Trek's holodeck, that might one day be used in homeland defense.
