    ATM: - Dr. Ben Goertzel & Co. - are a team to watch,
    with their Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) Research Institute. is the AGI mail list.

    Much work by others may be secret, or at least private.

    Since my own efforts are so slow and tedious, recently I
    have begun a parallel campaign of using XYZ AI Weblogs to
    encourage coders in "XYZ" programming languages to build AI Minds: -- C++ with new AI code; -- Mind.JAVA #1 & #2; -- Lisp AI Weblog; -- first Perl module; -- Prolog AI Weblog; -- Python AI Weblog; -- Ruby AI Blog (OO AI); -- Scheme AI Weblog; -- see "Mind.VB #001" link.

    Now with each programming-language "XYZ AI Weblog" I am trying a
    new (hey! it just dawned on me that "now" and "new" share a sense)
    tack of putting each dynamically powerful weblog out there as an
    attractor to programmers rather than my strident, chaotic self.

    Each XYZ AI Weblog focuses everything that I can find, pertaining
    to artificial intelligence in the particular programming language.
    The process of the fruition of these weblogs will take years or
    decades to observe, but some of them are now out on the 'Net in
    quadruplicate, that is, redundantly secure at four Web domains.

    As they say in French, "L'effort continue," but now there are
    about twenty parallel tracks of instigation of AI efforts in
    the twenty programming languages for which AI weblogs now exist.

    It is very nice of you to say that; you are welcome.
