It has in excess of 4,000 members worldwide. In its early history, the organization was presided over by notable figures in computer science such as Allen Newell, Edward Feigenbaum, Marvin Minsky and John McCarthy. The previous president was Manuela Veloso, the president is Thomas G. Dietterich, and the president elect is Subbarao Kambhampati.[2]

Activities

The AAAI provides many services to the Artificial Intelligence community. The AAAI sponsors many conferences and symposia each year as well as providing support to 14 journals in the field of artificial intelligence. AAAI produces a quarterly publication, AI Magazine, which seeks to publish significant new research and literature across the entire field of artificial intelligence and to help members to keep abreast of research outside their immediate specialties. The magazine has been published continuously since 1980.

AAAI organises the "AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence",[3] which is considered to be one of the top conferences in the field of artificial intelligence.[4][5]
