Whether any one technology will prove to be the central one in creating artificial intelligence, or whether a combination of technologies will be necessary to create an artificial intelligence is still an open question, so many scientists are experimenting with mixtures of such techniques. In Advances in Applied Artificial Intelligence these questions are implicitly addressed by scientists tackling specific problems which require intelligence in both individual and combinations of specific artificial intelligence techniques.

Advances in Applied Artificial Intelligence includes extensive references within each chapter which an interested reader may wish to pursue. Therefore, this book can be used as a central resource from which major avenues of research may be approached.

Reviews and Testimonials

The book stands out by presenting interesting real-life projects and applications that employ approaches going beyond mathematical reasoning through theorem proving. The reported results strongly suggest the great potential of these new techniques to support very complex and rich environments and operations, under difficult conditions. This book would be great additional reading for advanced university classes, where single chapters can be used to bring more light to the specific topic under discussion. It would also be of general interest to scholars and professionals with a particular application or problem in mind, who could refer to the specific chapter addressing the issue of interest.
