    Production management is crucial for achieving the timely and cost-effective execution of industrial production processes. In recent years, interest has increased in the use of artificial intelligence technologies for production planning and scheduling. However, scheduling research typically has been theoretical, has had a narrow focus, and has not covered adaptation to unforeseen events. The auth... View full abstract»

  • Vehicle detection using a hardware-implemented neural net

    Publication Year: 1997, Page(s):15 - 21
    Cited by:  Papers (4)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (140 KB)

    The authors describe how they developed a vehicle-detection model based on a radial basis function network and implemented it using the NI1000 recognition accelerator, which can classify up to 32,000 patterns per second-several hundred times faster than the software approach to neural net processing. A detection system using this implementation had a success rate greater than 90% View full abstract»

  • Automatic generation of intelligent agent programs

    Publication Year: 1997, Page(s):3 - 4
    Cited by:  Papers (8)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (72 KB)

    One cause for excitement about agent oriented AI is the belief that it is easier to write programs for many narrow, autonomous systems than for fewer, broader, user-driven systems. A related cause for excitement is the primary message of these comments: it is also easier to automatically generate agent programs. The artificial life, machine learning, and automatic programming literature already de... View full abstract»

    In our changing world, it's becoming harder and harder to keep secrets. Government agencies maintain profiles on each of us, credit card companies record every transaction we make, and mailing lists sell our addresses and telephone numbers to anyone who wants to buy them. This has caused much alarm, and at first glance it seems that the Internet and the World Wide Web are rapidly making things wor... View full abstract»

    The paper discusses the MetaCrawler Softbot parallel Web search service that has been available at the University of Washington since June 1995. It provides users with a single interface for querying popular general-purpose Web search services, such as Lycos and AltaVista, and has some sophisticated features that allow it to obtain results of much higher quality than simply regurgitating the outpu...

  • Using feedback to improve VLSI designs

    Publication Year: 1997, Page(s):67 - 73
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (116 KB)

    A new design optimization technique, called Constrained-Redo, uses feedback from solutions analysis to improve both the power and coverage of an existing VLSI design automation system, the DAA system. Constrained-Redo uses information from critiques of an existing solution to guide the design system to generate a new, different, and hopefully better solution. This technique is part of the feedback... View full abstract»

    Every once in a while an AI application comes along that stands out, not only for its technical merit, but more for its strategic merit. The paper discusses such an application at the White House. While it will be largely invisible, nestled into an electronic media affairs distribution system, it is noteworthy for several reasons. First, AI will soon be living at the White House, the powerful symb... View full abstract»

    One of the enabling technologies of the World Wide Web, along with browsers, domain name servers, and hypertext markup language, is the search engine. Although the Web contains over 100 million pages of information, those millions of pages are useless if you cannot find the pages you need. All major Web search engines operate the same way: a gathering program explores the hyperlinked documents of ... View full abstract»

    AI techniques play a prominent role in power system management and control. General planners, expert systems, artificial neural networks, inductive learning, fuzzy logic, genetic algorithms-researchers have applied almost every form of AI tool in at least prototype form to one or more problem areas in the power industry, and new practical applications of AI appear with increasing frequency.

    Batch manufacturing poses unique challenges to schedulers. The manufacturing processes are unpredictable, the environment is dynamic, and the required task and resource models are complicated. The Honeywell batch scheduler uses constraint envelope scheduling to address these needs, offering support for both schedule modifications and rescheduling. The authors are reimplementing the scheduler as pr... View full abstract»
