Olympics 2012 effort cancellation


Olympics 2012 effort cancellation
--------------------------------- 

The SSAISB Committee has at various times raised the possibility of the
society seeking to use the 2012 Olympics as an opportunity to inspire
new research and public understanding on aspects of AI related to sport,
games, security, infrastructure, etc. We have asked in particular for
volunteers to form a task force to push the matter forward. However, in
the absence of any volunteers we are now proposing to drop the matter,
as the Committee is not itself in a position to act as a task force.  We
must leave any society members who would like to pursue Olympics-related
angles of AI research or public understanding to do so by the means of
individual efforts.  We are also aware of a feeling on the part of some
researchers that enough government resources are going into the Olympics
already.
