Editorial Introduction: The Fourteenth Innovative Applications of Artificial Intelligence Conference (IAAI-2001)

AI Magazine

The Thirteenth Innovative Applications of Artificial Intelligence Conference (IAAI-2001) was held on 7 to 9 August 2001 in Seattle, Washington, in conjunction with the Seventeenth International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence. As in past years, papers were solicited in two categories: (1) deployed applications and (2) emerging applications and technologies. Deployed applications are systems that have been in use for at least several months by individuals or organizations other than their developers, have measurable benefits, and incorporate AI technologies. Emerging applications are technologies and systems that are close to deployment and clearly show an innovative implementation of AI technologies.
