The contributions to this book are from Artificial Intelligence specialists from all over the world. Their ideas on the future of AI are original, thought-provoking and sometimes controversial. The first section, Methodology, looks at how AI students should be educated, AI's relationship to computer science, and specialisation. The next part discusses the paradigms that dominated AI research in the past (such as the symbol processing paradigm) and a perceived need for new paradigms. Trends outlines the state of the art and trends in knowledge representation, intelligent interfaces, intelligent networking systems, and distributed AI. The fourth part, Prospects, looks further into the future, suggesting important research topics and the future of AI research in general. An important question is asked: Why should anybody use AI technology anyway?show more
