Microsite Offers Look at Artificial Intelligence

In the latest of its monthly series of interdisciplinary microsites addressing important public issues, SAGE Publishing is offering free access to a suite academic articles that focus on artificial intelligence.

The artificial intelligence, or AI, industry could top $1 trillion in 2018 and almost $4 trillion by 2022. Apart from the computer engineering and software development this growth will require, a huge amount of social and moral implications ought to be considered well before that money is spent. This microsite brings together cutting-edge research across many of these disciplines to help bridge the gap between the mechanical and technical elements of AI with the philosophical and ethical questions that it raises.

The microsite is intended as a hub for research published on artificial intelligence across all a wide variety of social science, science, technology and biological subjects. The material, numbering dozens of journal articles, draws from SAGE’s extensive stable of academic journals spanning pertinent areas

One goal of this and other SAGE microsites is to examine the entire spectrum of research on area of public interest – note, not in a specific discipline – to help researchers pursue knowledge outside of their usual silos.

Some of the specific high-profile or innovative pieces in the new collection include “Interactive robogami: An end-to-end system for design of robots with ground locomotion” by Adriana Schulz, et al. from The International Journal of Robotics Research, “Is Romantic Desire Predictable? Machine Learning Applied to Initial Romantic Attraction,” by Samantha Joel et al. from Psychological Science and “Predicting Risk of Suicide Attempts Over Time Through Machine Learning” by Colin G. Walsh et al. in Clinical Psychological Science or Claude MJ Braun’s “The biology of consciousness from the bottom up” from Adaptive Behavior.

The collection plumbs several individual wells in the AI field, such as ethics (like “Artificial Intelligence and Inclusion” by William R. Frey et al. in Social Science Computer Review) or the future of AI (such as “’You’re Fired,’ Says the Robot,” by Patrick McClure also in Social Science Computer Review). It also includes several special issues of academic journals looking at AI-related subjects, such as special issues on complex modelling from the International Journal of Architectural Computing or on deep learning from the International Journal of Robotics Research.
