The Twenty-Fifth Innovative Applications of Artificial Intelligence Conference was held at the Hyatt Regency Bellevue on Seattle’s Eastside in Bellevue, Washington, USA. IAAI was held in conjunction with the the Twenty-Sixth AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence and, its papers were published as part of these proceedings in volume 3. IAAI consisted of case studies of deployed applications with measurable benefits whose value depends on the use of AI technology, as well as emerging applications, which discuss efforts to apply AI tools, techniques, or methods to real world problems. Through the IAAI papers in this proceedings, AI researchers can learn about challenges of real-world domains, the utility of particular AI techniques for specific applications, and the difficulties, successes, and lessons learned in deploying AI applications. Hector Munoz-Avila (Lehigh University, USA) served as IAAI-13 conference chair. David Stracuzzi (Sandia National Laboratories, USA) served as IAAI-13 conference cochair.
IAAI-13 has 3 paper tracks: deployed applications, emerging applications and challenge problems. The deployed applications track focuses on fielded AI applications that distinguish themselves for their innovative use of AI technology. For 2013, there were 5 papers in this track that includes fielded systems for graduate admissions, natural language question answering, image processing, timetabling and prescription surveillance.
The emerging applications track focuses on areas where AI technology can have a practical impact. For 2013 there were 15 papers in this track. IAAI-13 included for the first time the challenge problems track. This track aims at presenting to the AI community at large new problems where AI could make a significant difference. We have a challenge problem paper on patterns of life.
The IAAI conference is sponsored by the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence.
