Platform Technical Committee Decision -- Agent PSIG Resurrection

On 27 September, the PTC met and a motion was made to adopt the AI PTF Charter, and make Bobbin Teegarden (OntoAge) and Claude Baudoin (cébé) its co-chairs. Evan Wallace (NIST) spotted another omission in the AI scope, the correction of which was accepted as a friendly amendment. The motions to (a) dissolve the AI PSIG, (b) form the AI PTF, both passed by white ballot.

A discussion ensued on what happens to the Agent PSIG, which had apparently “morphed” into the AI PSIG. Several people argued that there is still a specific set of agent technologies to discuss, and that we need to maintain a focus on those rather than risk seeing them forgotten inside the AI PTF. A motion was made to revive the Agent PSIG, with its pre-Amsterdam charter and co-chairs (Bobbin Teegarden, Zack Hashemi, and Jim Odell as c0-chair emeritus). This motion passed by white ballot too.
