Abstract : This chapter provides an overview of Artificial Intelligence (Al) technology, one of the more complex applications of digital systems. This chapter examines A1-based technology, focusing on three fields: neural networks, fuzzy' logic, and Expert Systems. This chapter provides the reader with the background and a basic understanding of the fundamental at those fields. Another section examines aspects of the Al development environment, including languages, tools, and AI-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, this chapter identifies safety issues and concerns over the use of this technology in airborne systems.
