CLAIRE is now officially supported by the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI), following a unanimous decision by AAAI’s Executive Council. AAAI is the world’s premier scientific society in the area of AI; it organises the “AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence”, which is considered to be one of the top conferences in the field, provides support to 14 journals and sponsors many conferences and symposia each year. In its early history, AAAI was presided over by notable figures in computer science, including Allen Newell, Edward Feigenbaum, Marvin Minsky and John McCarthy. CLAIRE is the only AI initiative to have received support by AAAI.
