  • The concept of artificial intelligence (AI) represents a challenging opportunity in expanding the potential benefits from computer systems. The potential of this concept lies in facilitating the development of intelligent computer systems to help analysts and decision-makers in problem solving in the same way that machines support the laborer. Because the knowledge of human experts is an essential input to many parts of chemical process planning, development, and operation, there are numerous opportunities for the applications of expert systems (a product from AI) in chemical engineering. Intelligent computer systems could be developed by chemical engineers to increase the contribution ofmore » computer technology to the advancement of the profession, particularly in the strategic management of the scientific and technological aspects of chemical engineering applications. This paper introduces systems analysis as a framework for the planning and development of intelligent computer systems in those areas where chemical engineering could play a significant role. 11 refs., 9 figs.« less
  • The present conference on industrial and engineering applications of artificial intelligence (AI) and expert systems (ESs) encompasses diagnostic and blackboard systems, vision, scheduling, intelligent database systems, AI manufacturing, qualitative models, intelligent interfaces, AI control, and natural language processing. Also addressed are knowledge-based systems, verification/validation, parallel/distributed systems, intelligent tutoring systems, machine learning, neural networks, robotics, knowledge acquisition, and AI techniques for the operative management of aircraft routing. Specific issues addressed include a hierarchical knowledge-based system for aircraft-image interpretation, a cognitive temporal model for planning in aircraft maintenance, applications of algorithm animation techniques, an ES for supporting technical modeling in engineering systems,more » airobotics, and an ES for the selection of industrial robots and its implementation in two environments.« less
  • The present conference discusses current developments in the fields of expert systems for fault diagnosis, expert systems for mechanism control, the scheduling of expert systems, expert system applications to design and manufacturing tasks, current expert-system technology, machine-learning and knowledge acquisition, pattern recognition, intelligent interfaces and tutoring systems, neural networks, and robotics applications. Attention is given to such issues as a prototype fault-diagnostics system for robots, a jet engine technical advisor, a self-tuner using fuzzy-logic control, a hybrid expert system combining AI and neural-net techniques, an expert system for Space Shuttle Main Engine component assembly, and AI methods in process plantmore » layout design. Also discussed are the application of qualitative knowledge to aircraft engine system design, an AI framework for satellite autonomy, a domain-independent framework for tutoring systems, an expert system for graph transformations, spatial reasoning for industrial robots, the automatic documentation of physical systems, intelligent real-time traffic control, object-recognition using skewed symmetry, and a predictive engine for the qualitative simulation of dynamic systems.« less
  • The conference presents papers on expert systems for fault diagnosis, expert system technology, expert systems applications, expert systems for design, and expert systems for process control. Consideration is given to pattern-based fault diagnosis using neural networks, diagnosing multiple faults using knowledge about malfunctioning behavior, approximate spatial reasoning, and integrating causal reasoning at different levels of abstraction. Other topics include uncertainty management in intelligent design aiding systems, a representational language for qualitative process control, and a neural control element in a control systems application.
  • Summary form only given, as follows. The commercial availability of expert systems utilizing specially developed knowledge bases raises significant questions about their potential utility in the practice of law. These systems, built with the aid of recent developments in artificial intelligence research, may only prove useful in certain areas of legal practice. Counselling and interviewing are areas where expert systems are likely to effect marked changes in the practice of law. In contract, computerized legal research using a knowledge-based system is more difficult to envision. This is due to complexities presented by the multiplicity of sources of the law, andmore » by conflicting opinions and interpretations in the common law. In the coming decade, use of expert systems in science and medicine will grow rapidly, and attempts will continue to be made to automate the legal reasoning process. As past research efforts have demonstrated, this will not be an easy task.« less
