An official publication of the AAAI, powered by i2k Connect.

AITopics is powered by AI technology from i2k Connect. The new engine combines machine learning with subject matter expert knowledge to automatically tag documents with unique, accurate and consistent metadata. Building on the familiar online shopping experience, you can discover and analyze just the information you need.

AITopics is the Internet's largest collection of information about the research, the people, and the applications of Artificial Intelligence. Our mission is to educate and inspire through a wide variety of curated and organized resources gathered from across the web. AITopics is brought to you by The Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI).

Primarily intended for instructors of AI courses and students from high school through first-year graduate school, AITopics enables you to:

  • Stay abreast of advances in AI
  • Read the news stories capturing media attention
  • Find background material and foundational classics that supplement textbook discussions
  • View videos
  • Listen to podcasts

Concept Tagging

Concept tags – words and phrases that best describe the content of documents – provide the ultimate ability to view information derived via AI-based analysis. Our platform is domain-aware and analyzes your information to deliver tags that make sense for your industry.


We've built a powerful auto-summary tool that reads each document, identifies the key points, and compiles them into an outline so you can hone in on the information that matters to you.

Relevant Topics

Our platform is adaptable and able to categorize content into over a dozen taxonomies, including Information Technology, in addition to your organization's specific taxonomies.

Interactive Analysis

With useful metadata such as concept tags and topics, it's easier than ever to filter and find documents. Graphical analyzers elevate your ability to detect trends and connections.

Your Environment, As-Is

Our platform is right at home in your current environment, whether on-premise, cloud or a hybrid. It supports interactive analysis of internal and Internet information, using the tags and taxonomies relevant your organization.

Multiple Content Sources

With connectors to SharePoint, File Shares and other Enterprise Content Management systems, our platform is ready for your content.

Information about AI from the News, Publications, and Conferences

Automatic Classification – Tagging and Summarization – Customizable Filtering and Analysis

If you are looking for an answer to the question What is Artificial Intelligence? and you only have a minute, then here's the definition the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence offers on its home page: "the scientific understanding of the mechanisms underlying thought and intelligent behavior and their embodiment in machines."


Artificial intelligence is part of our global culture, and its impact on our everyday lives is growing. Searching for news about AI presents a deluge of information. Why not use a little AI of our own to better handle the task?

NewsFinder scans high-quality online news sources every day and selects stories that it deems relevant to the Artificial Intelligence community. It also includes stories suggested by Google News. For each story, it determines the appropriate set of categories, shown in the left panel. Once a week, NewsFinder posts highlights of the week's news to the AAAI AI-Alert mailing list and publishes them in the AI-Alerts section of the site.

AITopics includes a "Classics" section that contains over a thousand books and articles written before 1995 that have played a significant role in the history of AI. Many are difficult to find outside large research libraries and have been digitized specifically for AITopics with support from the Artificial Intelligence Journal Foundation, administered by the IJCAI Board.

"The AAAI is pleased to be working with i2k Connect to deliver a new look and new functionality for AITopics. The site continues to be a valuable resource for our members and the lay public for current and historical information about AI. It is especially gratifying to have the power of AI used in the service of the AI community."
