The Twenty-Eighth Conference on Innovative Applications of Artificial Intelligencee (IAAI-16) was held at the Phoenix Convention Center in Phoenix, Arizona, USA from February 12–17, 2016. The proceedings volumes were published by AAAI Press.
The Innovative Applications of Artificial Intelligence Conference (IAAI) emphasizes the relevance of AI in our everyday lives. The IAAI-16 chair was Peter Z. Yeh (Nuance Communications, USA). The conference was cochaired by James Crawford (Orbital Insight, USA).
IAAI is was colocated with AAAI and their paper presentations and invited talks were coordinated. This enabled conference attendees to seamlessly move between conferences fostering interest in applied AI research while keeping track of the latest results of AI research.
IAAI-16 presented papers in three 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 the year 2016, there were three papers in this track, including descriptions of AI technology used for improving the protection of endangered wildlife from poachers, preventing the spread of foodborne illness by mining social media data, and a case study in ontology re-engineering from the automotive industry.
The emerging applications track focuses on areas in which AI technology can have a practical impact. For the year 2016, there were e 11 papers in this track, covering a broad range of topics such as inferring timescales for high-resolution climate archives, software diagnosis and testing, online digital libraries, cyber threat mitigation, manufacturing and mining, and much more.
The conferences are sponsored by the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence.
