The article reports that the meeting of the American Association of Artificial Intelligence addressed many aspects of this emerging direction, and provided a forum of discussions for methodologies for collecting different types on knowledge, including commonsense knowledge; linguistic resources; and application specific knowledge, such as collection of text labels for images and correctness judgments for active learning of information extraction wrappers. The meeting also addressed approaches to motivating users and controlling quality, including game-like interfaces for the contribution process, rewarding corroborated contributions, and fostering contributor communities. The invited talk and the panel discussion spoke to using the collected knowledge for reasoning about everyday objects and situations, among other things. The symposium has attracted presentations and participation from Microsoft Research, Yahoo!, Cycorp, and researchers from universities from U.S., Europe and Asia.
