Release Date: 1997-10-28
Pages: 512
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The field of artificial intelligence has been maturing for a number of years and has inspired many researchers to produce innovative intelligent systems to demonstrate the capability of intelligent machines and their success in solving human problems. Only recently, however, have intelligent systems shown progress in demonstrating success in real-life applications, particularly in industrial environments. Many organizations have successfully used at least some limited aspects of intelligent research in their day-to-day operations. The objectives of this volume are to focus on these real-life applications and report a comprehensive view of the theoretical and applied aspects of intelligent systems technology. The most recent work in industrial, commercial, military, and academic environments is summarized, including 61 state-of-the-art reports on active research applied to real world problems.

Fire And Explosion Hazards Handbook Of Industrial Chemicals
Author: Nicholas P. Cheremisinoff
Publisher: Elsevier
Release Date: 2013-10-22
Pages: 492
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The handbook provides ready information on the fire and chemical reactivity of commonly used chemicals. Its purpose is to provide basic information important to the safe handling of chemicals and to help provide guidance in responding to a hazardous materials incident, in particular, incidents involving reactive chemicals and materials posing fire and explosion hazards. The volume has been written for chemical handling specialists, first responders to hazardous materials incidents, and firefighters. The basic definition used for a hazard materials incident is any situation that may potentially lead to catastrophic fire or explosion, and or human exposed to a toxic chemical. This situation may result from a spill of a hazardous material, a leak from a storage vessel or shipping container, or the mixing of incompatible chemicals whereby a chemical reaction could occur resulting in the release of energy and generation of toxic and perhaps flammable by-products. The volume provides chemical specific information, providing the reader with rigorous information on the chemical of interest. This book is a compendium of chemical specific fire and chemical reactivity data and information. More than 1,000 chemicals have been researched and organized into a reference handbook for fire specialists, chemical handling specialists, and plant safety engineers. The specific information provided for chemicals includes the flammability characteristics, recommended fire extinguishing practices, fire extinguishing agents not to be used, behavior in fires, burning characteristics, chemical reactivity with regard to water and common materials, incompatible chemical mixtures, containment and neutralization methods for spills. This reference book has been designed as a data bank for the hazardous materials handling specialist and industrial safety managers dealing with large chemical inventories. It is intended to be used by fire and loss prevention specialists and as a basis for developing procedures for safe storing and handling of chemicals. The authors have included an extensive physical properties section on chemicals, with information most pertinent to fire response situations.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

These are the proceedings of the 8th International Workshop on Cooperative Information Agents (CIA 2004), held at the Fair and Congress Center in - furt, Germany, September 27–29, 2004. It was part of the multi-conference Net. ObjectDays 2004, and, in particular, was co-located with the 2nd German Conference on Multiagent Systems Technologies (MATES 2004). In today’s networked world of linked heterogeneous, pervasive computer systems, devices, and information landscapes, the intelligent coordination and provision of relevant added-value information at any time, anywhere, by means of cooperative information agents becomes increasingly important for a variety of applications. An information agent is a computational software entity that has access to one or multiple, heterogeneous, and geographically dispersed data and information sources. It proactively searches for and maintains information on behalf of its human users, or other agents, preferably just in time. In other words,itismanagingandovercomingthedi?cultiesassociatedwithinformation overload in open, pervasive information and service landscapes. Cooperative - formation agents may collaborate with each other to accomplish both individual and shared joint goals depending on the actual preferences of their users, b- getary constraints, and resources available. One major challenge of developing agent-based intelligent information systems in open environments is to balance the autonomy of networked data, information, and knowledge sources with the potential payo? of leveraging them using information agents.

Agent Oriented Software Engineering II
Author: Michael J. Wooldridge
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
Release Date: 2002-02-20
Pages: 330
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Since the 1980s, software agents and multi-agent systems have grown into what is now one of the most active areas of research and development activity in computing generally. One of the most important reasons for the current intensity of interest in the agent-based computing paradigm certainly is that the concept of an agent as an autonomous system, capable of interacting with other agents in order to satisfy its design objectives, is a natural one for software designers. This recognition has led to the growth of interest in agents as a new paradigm for software engineering. This book reflects the state of the art in the field by presenting 14 revised full papers accepted for the second workshop on this topic, AOSE 2001, together with five invited survey articles. The book offers topical sections on societies and organizations, protocols and interaction frameworks, UML and agent systems, agent-oriented requirements capture and specification, and analysis and design.

Industrial And Engineering Applications Of Artificial Intelligence And Expert Systems
Author: Graham F. Forsyth
Publisher: CRC Press
Release Date: 1995-08-08
Pages: 857
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is still seen by some as a controversial area of computer science research. This opinion is reinforced by the perception that AI is about the creation of a model of human intelligence in a computer and the fact that this has not yet been done. In fact, this demonstrably false impression of AI is nowhere further from the truth than in the areas of industry and engineering where AI techniques have become the norm in sectors including computer aided design, intelligent manufacturing, and control. AI techniques are fast becoming accepted in industry-related areas such as production of technical documentation, planning and scheduling of processes, fuzzy control and analysis (e.g., parameter extraction) of real-time engineering data. The papers in this volume represent work by both computer scientists and engineers separately and together. They directly and indirectly represent a real collaboration between computer science and engineering, covering a wide variety of fields related to intelligent systems technology ranging from neural networks; knowledge acquisition and representation; automated scheduling; machine learning; multimedia; genetic algorithms; fuzzy logic; robotics; automated reasoning; heuristic searching; automated problem solving; temporal, spatial and model-based reasoning; clustering; blackboard architectures; automated design; pattern recognition and image processing; automated planning; speech recognition; simulated annealing; and intelligent tutoring, as well as various computer applications of intelligent systems including financial analysis, artificial insemination, automated manufacturing, diagnosis, oil discoveries, communications and controls, health delivery, air travel and tourist information processing, and aircraft trajectory planning.
