Proceedings of the Sixth Conference on Innovative Applications of Artificial Intelligence
Books in the innovative applications of artificial intelligence (IAAI) series report on the nature and range of real-world problems that AI technology can address successfully today. All of the contributions in these books have a practical slant, showing how AI has been successfully applied to a wide spectrum of domains and tasks. They provide an excellent sampling of the types of applications coming on line.
This year's IAAI applications represent a cross-section of large-scale organizations and tasks. Industries represented include computers, finance, law, manufacturing, health-care, publishing, telecommunications, as well as government agencies. Functions that have been AI-automated range from administration, accounting and finance, to customer sales and service; from software re-engineering, to transaction processing. They cover product design, customer service, diagnosis, manufacturing, quality management, and production. As a whole, the applications show the continued movement of AI into critical core business functions.
