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

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.
