Abstract : This report provides an overview of Artificial Intelligence (Al) technology, one of the more complex applications of digital systems. This report examines Al-based technology, focusing on three fields: Neural Networks, fuzzy logic, and Expert Systems. This report provides the reader with the background and a basic understanding of the fundamentals of these fields. Another section examines aspects of the AI development environment, including languages, tools, and Al-based hardware components. Some of the proposed aviation-related applications for both civil and military aircraft, including pilot assistants and diagnostic aids, are surveyed. Additionally, certification issues, including regulations, guidelines, and verification and validation techniques are examined. Human factors issues relating to the use of this technology are identified and reviewed. In addition, the report identifies safety issues and concerns over the use of this technology in airborne systems.
