Proceedings of the Fourteenth International Florida Artificial Intelligence Research Society Conference (FLAIRS 2001)
The Florida AI Research Society Conference was founded in 1987 to promote and advance artificial intelligence research within the state of Florida, fostering interaction between researchers at colleges, universities, and industry. FLAIRS is held in cooperation with the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI). The conference continues its tradition of attracting a large number of international authors and participants. The program clearly reflects this diversity with authors from all over the world. The topics covered this year in the general session include optimization, genet-ic algorithms, natural language processing, robotics, knowledge representation, AI and e-commerce, intelligent agents, human-computer interaction, intelligent user interface, decision analysis and models, knowledge based systems, data mining and the web, and intelligent tutoring systems. The program features eleven special tracks on knowledge management, knowledge discovery and data mining, uncertainty, verification/validation and system certification, AI education, case-based reasoning, AI in aerospace, spatiotemporal reasoning, neural networks and fuzzy logic, niche autonomous robots, and machine learning.
