Title: Artificial intelligence and statistics

Abstract

This book explores the possible applications of artificial intelligence in statistics and conversely, statistics in artificial intelligence. It is a collection of seventeen papers written by leaders in the field. Most of the papers were prepared for the Workshop on Artificial Intelligence and Statistics held in April 1985 and sponsored by ATandT Bell Laboratories. The book is divided into six parts: uncertainly propagation, clustering and learning, expert systems, environments for supporting statistical strategy, knowledge acquisition, and strategy. The editor ties the collection together in the first chapter by providing an overview of AI and statistics, discussing the Workshop, and exploring future research in the field.

  • This sourcebook provides information on the developments in artificial intelligence originating in Japan. Spanning such innovations as software productivity, natural language processing, CAD, and parallel inference machines, this volume lists leading organizations conducting research or implementing AI systems, describes AI applications being pursued, illustrates current results achieved, and highlights sources reporting progress.
  • One of the central claims of mechanism has been that human beings are nothing more than (very complicated) machines. This claim has been found quite disturbing by some people, and over the years there have been numerous attempts to remove the annoyance by providing a convincing refutation. The most familiar form that such attempts at refutation take is that of an argument purporting to show that humans are possessed of some quality, feature, characteristic, or ability, X, which machines cannot possibly have. The evidence for humans possessing X, on the other hand, is usually empirical: we have merely to lookmore » in order to see that humans have X. The possession of X, then, is supposed to distinguish men from machines. The author believes none of these attempts will ever succeed. He does not, however, argue for this conclusion anywhere in the present work. This is because, he sees no way of proving the quite general statement that there is no such trait X. Instead, he chooses to examine and criticise some ten or twelve specific arguments, each of which advances some particular candidate for X. In each case he finds that the argument in question fails to establish any essential difference between men and machines.« less
  • Presenting papers originally given at 1985 workshop, this collection describes the current state of research in distributed artificial intelligence (DAI). DAI is concerned with the cooperative solution of problems by a decentralized group of agents. The papers in this volume describe architectures and languages for achieving cooperative problem solving in a distributed environment, including several successful applications of distributed artificial intelligence in manufacturing, information retrieval, and distributed sensing.
  • This guide covers a range of real-world AI applications through the use of Turbo Prolog language, showing users how to take full advantage of its capabilities. Fully explains AI concepts in terms of Turbo Prolog, and develops in detail the individual areas of AI, showing readers how each concept is applied through numerous realistic examples, including the development of natural language processors, workable expert systems, and knowledge structures.
  • This is a guide on applying the emerging technology of artificial intelligence and expert systems to the corporate environment. The authors focus on specific, practical applications and provide ways to set them in motion, including advice on determining realistic applications, evaluating costs, getting authorization for a purchase, and implementing AI and expert systems.
