LAIT Retired

March 15th, 2005

We retired the old web sit for the UMBC Laboratory for Advanced Information Technology (LAIT) by redirecting it to the UMBC ebiquity site. You can still see the old web pages, frozen in time, at http://www.cs.umbc.edu/lait/lait.shtml. I’m not sure when we formed LAIT. I think it must have been around 1994. The AI stood for “Advanced Information” because “Artificial Intelligence” was somewhat in disfavor in certain US funding agencies at the time. The site hasn’t changed much since about 2000 and we’ve moved on the the UMBC ebiquity research group. I have a lot of good memories from the small, crampted but cozy LAIT lab in the ECS building. Soon we will work up the nerve to deal with some of the other ghosts from the past — KQML and agentWeb.
