Abstract : Artificial Intelligence (Al) is an emerging technology that has recently attracted considerable attention. Many applications are now under development. The goal of Artificial Intelligence is focused on developing computational approaches to intelligent behavior. This goal is so broad covering virtually all aspects of human cognitive activity that substantial confusion has arisen as to the actual nature of Al, its current status and its future capability. This volume, the first in a series of NBS/NASA reports on the subject, attempts to address these concerns. Thus, this report endeavors to clarify what Al is, the foundations on which it rests, the techniques utilized, applications, the participants and, finally, Al's state-of-the-art and future trends. It is anticipated that this report will prove useful to government and private engineering and research managers, potential users, and others who will be affected by this field as it unfolds.
