    The growing use of artificial intelligence (AI) at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in mission operations and other areas of the space program is discussed. Mission operations is furthest along, two systems having begun operation in parallel with existing methods in time for Voyager 2's Neptune encounter in August 1989. One is called Sharp (spacecraft health automated reasoning prototype) and the oth... View full abstract»

    The author identifies major causes leading to ineffective application of artificial intelligence (AI). His views are based on personal observations made over ten years of building, deploying, and reviewing AI-based systems. The author attributes most failures to one or both of the following: misconceptions regarding the nature of AI technology, and poor management skills in acquiring, nurturing, a...

  • Adding temporal reasoning to expert-system-building environments

    Publication Year: 1990, Page(s):23 - 30
    Cited by:  Papers (27)  |  Patents (10)

    The authors discuss the incorporation of temporal-reasoning capability in an expert-system-shell environment, and the implication of this approach by storing attribute values with time tags. In essence, this adds an extra dimension (time) to the frame database but, due to the implementation method chosen, the storage space increase tends to be small. A time-tag capability for point times and inter... View full abstract»

  • Implementing fuzzy rule-based systems on silicon chips

    Publication Year: 1990, Page(s):31 - 45
    Cited by:  Papers (39)  |  Patents (9)

    The authors address the implementation of a fuzzy simulator (FSIM) and discuss architectures for a general-purpose VLSI fuzzy-inference processor. The FSIM tool aids in the rapid prototyping of fuzzy production system (FPS), and represents a convenient transitional step in the implementation of an FPS on silicon. They present a brief theoretical review of fuzzy reasoning, introduce the FSIM, and d... View full abstract»

    The authors discuss the application of inductive learning to credit risk analysis. Three risk classification problems are addressed: business loan evaluation, bond rating, and bankruptcy prediction. The use of a system called Marble, a knowledge-based decision-support system that uses approximately 80 decision rules to evaluate commercial loans, is discussed. In particular, an aspect of Marble tha... View full abstract»

  • Transfer Pricing-integrating expert systems in MIS environments

    Publication Year: 1990, Page(s):54 - 62
    Cited by:  Papers (7)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (580 KB)

    The use of Transfer Pricing, an expert system module that replaces and improves on a Cobol program, to determine the value at which a product is transferred from one location to another across international boundaries, is discussed. In presenting the case history of Transfer Pricing, the author stresses three themes: (1) integration into the MIS environment, (2) advantage of the expert system appr... View full abstract»

  • Printing press configuration-a knowledge-based approach

    One of the steps in preparing newspaper presses for a new printing run is composing a lineup. A newspaper lineup arranges the printing run's many image plates among the numerous press locations where images are transferred to paper; this is both a configuration problem and a combinatorial problem. Since lineup design relies heavily on expert heuristics, a knowledge-based approach is well suited fo... View full abstract»
