ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE APPLICATIONS
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a well-researched branch of computer science. After a long period of low-lying, it has suddenly sprung back to life and is expected to make a breakthrough in designing algorithms that will be very close to human thinking, intuition and creativity. For the time being, my lab is not too concerned with the theoretical development of AI, but rather with its diverse applications.
The research in my lab ideals with the application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques and algorithms to various disciplines. In particular, we focus on the following three areas:
DESIGN OF EXPERT SYSTEMS
With my under-grad and graduate students, I am trying to develop knowledge-based systems, which are traditionally called Expert Systems. These systems contain a large knowledge-based (similar to a database) acquired from domain experts. They have an inference capability to refer to the knowledge and give advice to users in the domain of interest. The current research area is how to embed learning mechanisms and semantics in these systems.
