Artificial intelligence in manufacturing

  • D. A. Milner
  • V. C. Vasiliou


Artificial intelligence (AI) is concerned with enabling computers to take on the characteristics that make man appear intelligent. It began to become an active field of research within computer science (or possibly half-way between computer science and psychology) in about 1955. Since that time, the study of AI has embraced a wide range of topics, including problem solving, theorem proving, game playing, learning and teaching.
