Now in its seventh year, the AAAI Special Awards program at the annual Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) consists of up to ten awards to recognize outstanding achievement in the area of intelligent computation and robotics. The awards are intended for the best exhibits in the area of computer science with an artificial intelligence component. Finalists in other areas with significant computer science components are also eligible. The student authors of each award-winning project share $500 and each student receives a certificate and other mementos. The winners and their schools also receive a complimentary one-year membership in the AAAI, including a subscription to AI Magazine.

This year, ISEF was held May 8-14, 2005 in Phoenix, Arizona. There were ten winning projects by twelve students (one team). Five projects were entered in the category of computer science and five were in engineering.

The 2005 winners are as follows:
