Researchers from more than 20 countries will gather in Sunnyvale, Calif., next month to tell how the emerging technology of data fusion is fanning out into fields as diverse as predicting traffic jams and earthquakes, and building robots with hand-eye coordination. Some partisans see information fusion one day supplanting artificial intelligence and fuzzy logic in the breadth of real-world problems it addresses, but others caution that the technology — which had its origins in military tar
