About this title

Synopsis:

When men of knowledge impart this knowledge, I do not mean they will convince your reason. I mean they will awaken in you the faith that it is so. - Sri Krishna, Bhagavadgita BACKGROUND The use of computers has led to significant productivity increases in the en­ gineering industry. Most ofthe computer-aided engineering applications were . restricted to algorithmic computations, such as finite element programs and circuit analysis programs. However, a number ofproblems encountered in en­ gineering are not amenable to purely algorithmic solutions. These problems are often ill-structured; the term ill-structured problems is used here to de­ note problems that do not have a clearly defined algorithmic solution. An experienced engineer deals with these ill-structured problems using his/her judgment and experience. The knowledge-based systems (KBS) technology, which emerged out of research in artificial intelligence (AI), offers a method­ ologyto solve these ill-structuredengineering problems. The emergenceofthe KBS technology can be viewed as the knowledge revolution: other important events that led to increased productivity are the industrial revolution (17th century); the invention of the transistor and associated developments (first half of the 20th century); and the world-wide web (towards the end of the 20th century). Kurzweil, in a lecture at M. LT on December 3, 1987, linked the progress of automation to two industrial revolutions: the first industrial PREFACE xxxii revolution leveraged our physical capabilities, whereas the second industrial revolution - the knowledge revolution - is expected leverage oUr mental ca­ pabilities.

Synopsis:

This work deals with the applications of artificial intelligence in engineering, addressing both the theoretical and practical aspects of developing intelligent systems. Particular emphasis is placed on knowledge-based expert systems and on neural networks, with sections on knowledge representation, searching and solving strategies, blackboard systems, analogical, case-based and qualitative reasoning, and project management. Knowledge-based system building tools are discussed, along with practical tips on building large intelligent systems for solving engineering problems. The key concepts are explained, with relevant examples, and with additional contributions from researchers in the field.
