Mission Statement

The mission of Utilika Foundation is to contribute to the theory and practice of universal interactivity. In a world of universal interactivity, any two or more persons on Earth could converse, work, and play together at will, and human beings could express their aspirations to, and be understood by, intelligent machines, which could join with other machines and human beings to pursue goals. We aim to make our contribution through activities--pure and applied research, publication, conferences, education, and commercialization--that advance the philosophy, science, and technology of communication and collaboration among diverse human and artificial agents.

Description

We have chosen to focus on obstacles to human-human, human-machine, and machine-mediated human communication and collaboration arising from the diversity and limitations of languages. For 3 years we have supported research on this problem at the University of Washington's Turing Center. The Turing Center has developed and tested a prototype of a resource that could facilitate translation among all languages in the world. We are now enlarging this resource and developing a strategy for its deployment so people and software everywhere in the world can access it.
