Artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics have gone through three generations of development, from Turing test, logic theory machine, to expert system and self-driving car. In the third-generation today, AI and robotics have collaboratively been used in many areas in our society, including industry, business, manufacture, research, and education. There are many challenging problems in developing AI and robotics applications. We launch this new Journal of Artificial Intelligence and Technology to facilitate the exchange of the latest research and practice in AI and technologies. In this inaugural issue, we first introduce a few key technologies and platforms supporting the third-generation AI and robotics application development based on stacks of technologies and platforms. We present examples of such development environments created by both industry and academia. We also selected eight papers in the related areas to celebrate the foundation of this journal.
