Proceedings of the Ninth Conference on Innovative Applications of Artificial Intelligence
The Ninth Annual Conference on Innovative Applications of Artificial Intelligence (IAAI-97) continues the IAAI tradition of case studies of deployed applications with measurable benefits whose value depends on the use of AI technology. In addition, IAAI-97, for the first time, augments these case studies with papers that address emerging areas of AI technology or applications. It also includes several invited talks organized around this same theme of emerging areas. IAAI is organized as an independent program within the National Conference, and the schedules are coordinated, to allow attendees to move freely between IAAI and National Conference sessions. IAAI and the National Conference are jointly sponsoring several Invited Talks that fit the theme of both programs.
