      Philpapers.org has a very relevant bibliography if you haven't seen it. 


      It would be great to have a similar site for artificial intelligence.

      Good idea, but that would be a huge and messy bibliography!
      Wanna give it a shot? ;)

      We would have to make it a collaborative and "smart" website, even better than philpapers (since we're computer scientists?). Could be a very nice hobby project indeed, at least for the reason that I'm having a difficult time editing bibliographies, and no matter how hard I try, I seem to miss some good papers. I never seem to have time for web programming, but I'm learning ocsigen for a project. I suppose the paper crawler part is quite important (i.e. google scholar like functionality), but I liked some other features of this site, as well. The paper categorization is great. And the website is neat.

      That being said, I think philosophers have done a much better job at this than we did. Currently, the only place I know where there are online computer science papers is the arxiv (except these commercial sites like academia.edu) and that's not a very sociable site. On the arxiv, there are only broad categories of CS and there isn't adequate browsing, bibliographies are external and physics / astrophysics oriented. OTOH, academia.edu just looks good and doesn't quite have the air of arxiv and I don't like commercial sites.

      I thought that the philosophy of probability papers would be interesting for the MAGIC list members, since almost all mathematical AI researchers have a keen interest in philosophy.
