    A new crop of technology grafting AI to data mining techniques is making unstructured data - emails, blogs, business records, manufacturer warranties, and other kinds of text - more useful to companies. This utility sprouts from computers' ability to automatically understand and organize text so that they can slice and dice it. Machine learning, natural language processing, hidden Markov models, a... View full abstract»

    Transportation and logistics organizations often face large-scale combinatorial problems on both operational and strategic levels. By exploiting problem-specific characteristics, classical heuristic methods--such as constructive and iterative local search methods--aim at a relatively limited exploration of the search space, thereby producing acceptable-quality solutions in modest computing times. ...

    Distribution is a major factor in the supply chain for Sodra Cell, a leading manufacturer of pulp intended for paper production. Each year, the company transports large quantities of pulp using ships, trains, and trucks; here we focus on scheduling the ships and optimizing deliveries to minimize distribution costs.

    Among all material-handling systems used in modern factories, those based on automated guided vehicles have, for many reasons, met with great success. AGV systems are much more flexible than traditional systems such as fixed-path conveyors, allowing dynamic reconfiguration of guidepaths in accordance with factory's changing transportation needs.

    We model the behavior of the demand distribution and lead-time distribution separately and determine the value of demand during lead time by discrete-event simulation. A new methodology determines the optimal inbound-resupply strategy when suppliers ship goods to receivers. An evolutionary metaheuristic uses discrete-event simulation to calculate safety stock levels and minimize total logistics co... View full abstract»

    We have developed a pattern-identification mechanism that endows cooperative search with capabilities to create new information and guide the global search. The proposed mechanism sends information to independent metaheuristics about promising and unpromising patterns in the solution space. By fixing or prohibiting specific solution attribute values in certain search metaheuristics, we can focus t... View full abstract»

    Information technology applications that support decision-making processes and problem-solving activities have proliferated and evolved. Distributing used cars to various automobile auctions is a complicated problem with multiple variables. We developed a software system to address these complexities and implemented it on a real distribution problem for a large car manufacturer. The system detects... View full abstract»

    The container-loading problem aims to determine the arrangement of items in a container. We present GRMODGRASP, a new algorithm for the CLP based on the GRASP (greedy randomized adaptive search procedure) paradigm. We evaluate GRMODGRASP'S performance in terms of volume use and load stability and by comparing it with nine well-known algorithms. Our approach produces solutions that surpass other ap...

    The quadratic assignment problem, a classical combinatorial optimization problem, has garnered much attention due to its many applications and solution complexity. This research represents the first use of parallelization for path relinking within the QAP setting. We used a simple form of path relinking to focus on the parallel implementation's elements and to determine their impact when used with... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a new spring net approach for distributed problem solving in MAS. Distributed artificial intelligence consists of distributed problem solving and multi-agent systems. We extend such specialized DPS and MASs to a general MAS, such that an agent may make a trade-off between selfishness and unselfishness, thus adjusting its own personality and autonomy. This alternative to traditi... View full abstract»

    Computers, including intelligent systems, assist human decision making in many ways. Expert systems can be considered decision aids, as can systems that use statistical methods to assist in diagnostic procedures. Decision aids can provide information involved in deciding or information pertinent to evaluating states of the world. To support these situation assessment and monitoring activities, com...

    This paper primarily presented a philosophical critique of an influential AI paper. We tried to show how reasoning processes could be generalized to include manipulations of analogical representations that use relations to represent relations, instead of using only explicit symbols to represent relations, as in logic and algebra.
