Abstract : This paper discusses existing and potential applications to the field of software engineering of methods and tools developed in the area of artificial intelligence. We also indicate problem areas in the field of artificial intelligence which might be resolved by software engineers. The topics include programming by searching as a basic programming paradigm the use of rule based systems and A1-languages, applications to rapid prototyping and program transformations. Furthermore the potential use of expert systems in software engineering is investigated.
