The Sixth Innovative Applications of Artificial Intelligence Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IAAI-94) was collocated with AAAI-94 and held July 31–August 4, 1994, at the convention center in Seattle, Washington.
The Sixth Annual Conference on Innovative Applications of Artificial Intelligence showcased the most impressive deployed AI applications of the past year. These applications were winners of a worldwide competition for the best uses of AI technology to solve real world problems. Winning applications were fully deployed and achieved significant business benefits. The organizations honored this year included many of the most prestigious names in the business world (Lockheed, EDS, Countrywide Funding, Pacific Bell, Bell Atlantic, IBM, AT&T, DuPont) and in the government (IRS, US Customs, US Navy, Texas Mental health, Australian Dept. of Veterans Affairs). The IAAI conferences continued to demonstrate and showcase the importance of using AI technology within critical business functions. Applications were presented in talks that were accompanied by audiovisual presentations and live demonstrations. Meet the author’s discussions at the end of each session encouraged close interaction between presenters and other conference participants. IAAI also included the AI On Line panels focusing on issues of particular interest to the business and government communities. IAAI-94 sessions were scheduled to allow participants to attend Raj Reddy’s address as well as to engage in some of the other AAAI activities, including tutorials, workshops, and the exhibition.
