    Energy Management Systems (EMSs) were introduced in the vertically organized power industry five decades ago. After the restructuring of the power industry and the founding of the electricity market, four more-orless independent players appeared in this market-generation, transmission, distribution, and consumption. This was a strong driver for the introduction of new tools to manage very complex ... View full abstract»

    Since its early development in the 1950s, artificial intelligence (AI) has been studied to mimic the function of human brains in solving science and engineering problems. Despite alternating bust and boom periods, AI has consistently progressed with a number of development milestones such as evolutionary algorithms, neural networks, and deep learning. For many AI test applications, the game of Go ... View full abstract»
