A mashup is a lightweight (web) application that offers new functionality by combining, aggregating and transforming data and services available on the web. For example the prototypical mashup iMusicMash brings together data on artists from Yahoo Search, Eventful, Twitter and Wikipedia for a music reference that can be accessed from iPhones and Android phones. Another well known mashup combines real estate listings with all kinds of data about a city and displays them jointly on a map - allowing prospective house buyers to quickly gauge an area where a particular house is located.
The AI mashup challenge accepts mashups that use AI technology, including but not restricted to machine learning and data mining, machine vision, natural language processing, reasoning, ontologies and the semantic web.
