New academic journal on artificial intelligence launched

New academic journal on artificial intelligence launched
2024-03-01
(Press-News.org) STARKVILLE, Miss. -- Mississippi State University's Department of Computer Science and Engineering has launched a new open-access academic journal focused on advancements in artificial intelligence.

The journal AI Letters aims to fill a gap in peer-reviewed publications covering AI research. Department Head Shahram Rahimi and Assistant Research Professor Noorbakhsh Amiri Golilarz, editors-in-chief of the journal, saw the need for a publication that could quickly share new ideas and insights in AI, a hot topic not just in computer science but the entire scientific community.

“When we looked into establishing an AI journal, we found a gap in the field, particularly in the availability of journals that cater to concise, focused discussions on AI topics,” Amiri Golilarz said. “Many existing journals required long literature reviews and introductions, which could be time-consuming for authors and readers. This led us to create AI Letters, which allows authors to directly discuss their insights and key points in a short, easy-to-consume manner.”

Launching from Mississippi State's Department of Computer Science, AI Letters looks to establish itself as a leading open-access publication advancing artificial intelligence. It provides a platform for rapidly sharing new ideas that can drive progress in AI applications and beyond.

Amiri Golilarz explained they want a broad range of topics covered in the journal, including machine learning, robotics, natural language processing, computer vision, and more. Submissions that push the boundaries of what is possible in AI challenge existing paradigms and offer fresh perspectives are welcomed. Covering a range of AI-related topics from different domains, he said, makes the journal more comprehensive, appealing to an extensive range of audiences, and impactful in driving progress across the field of artificial intelligence.

“AI is such a broad, multidisciplinary field with many applications and subfields,” Amiri Golilarz said. “It made sense to us to cover this diverse range and position the journal as a leading resource to the whole field of AI, not just niche areas.”

He went on to say that including industry applications and prospective broadens the scope beyond academia and makes AI Letters more helpful to professionals applying AI outside of research.

The electronic journal will offer a continuously published model, with rapid double-blind peer review and a maximum two to three-week review timeframe. Authors can submit concise two-page letters discussing their work, making the journal accessible to academics and industry professionals. The two-page limit, Amiri Golilarz said, was chosen because it suits readers in the academic and professional worlds. He said the goal is to concisely present unique ideas and insights, making the content more accessible and easier to digest for a wide range of readers.

Already, AI Letters has received global interest, with professors from Canada, Europe and beyond inquiring about submissions. Amiri Golilarz said he and Rahimi aim to build an international editorial board and readership in the future.

Students, faculty, and industry professionals can all submit their work to the open-access journal. More information and submission guidelines can be found at https://ail.sigmaxplore.com.

Mississippi State University is taking care of what matters. Learn more at www.msstate.edu.

UMaine researchers use GPS-tracked icebergs in novel study to improve climate models

UMaine researchers use GPS-tracked icebergs in novel study to improve climate models
2024-03-01
Over the last four decades, warming climate and ocean temperatures have rapidly altered the Greenland Ice Sheet, creating concern for marine ecosystems and weather patterns worldwide. The environment has challenged scientists in their attempts to measure how water moves around and melts the ice sheet because equipment can be destroyed by icebergs floating near the glaciers. Collected using a novel approach, research from the University of Maine has unearthed new information to help scientists better understand circulation patterns of ocean water around glaciers. A group of pioneers in glacial research attached GPS devices to icebergs and used their mobility to understand fjord circulation, ...

A mental process that leads to putting off an unpleasant task

2024-03-01
COLUMBUS, Ohio – Putting off a burdensome task may seem like a universal trait, but new research suggests that people whose negative attitudes tend to dictate their behavior in a range of situations are more likely to delay tackling the task at hand. The psychological term to describe this mental process is called valence weighting bias, which describes people’s tendency to adapt in new circumstances by drawing more strongly from either their positive or negative attitudes – or, in the context of approaching an unpleasant task, whether negative or positive internal “signals” carry the most weight in guiding the final behavior.   “And ...

The role of history in how efficient color names evolve

2024-03-01
Suppose two speakers of the same language are playing a guessing game where each has the same color swatches, and Player 1 tries to get Player 2 to guess a hue by naming the color. If the second player consistently guesses correctly as often as possible, that indicates their language has an efficient color naming system. Past research has shown that efficient color vocabularies are constrained both by how people perceive colors and by how much they want or need to communicate about a given color. For example, Penn researchers found in a 2021 study that the need to communicate about reds and yellows is high across languages, while greens are more important in some languages. Now, ...

AI outperforms humans in standardized tests of creative potential

AI outperforms humans in standardized tests of creative potential
2024-03-01
Score another one for artificial intelligence. In a recent study, 151 human participants were pitted against ChatGPT-4 in three tests designed to measure divergent thinking, which is considered to be an indicator of creative thought. Divergent thinking is characterized by the ability to generate a unique solution to a question that does not have one expected solution, such as “What is the best way to avoid talking about politics with my parents?” In the study, GPT-4 provided more original and elaborate answers than the human participants. The study, “The current state of artificial intelligence generative ...
