Emerging Innovative Applications of Artificial Intelligence 2012: Introduction to the IAAI Articles in This Issue

Article excerpt

The Innovative Applications of Artificial Intelligence conference (IAAI) is the premier venue for documenting the transition of AI technology into applications. In this and the next issue of AI Magazine, we will present extended versions of papers presented at IAAI-12 (held in Toronto, Ontario, Canada) that were selected for their description of AI technologies that are either in practical use or close to it. We also present an article by Ramon Lopez de Mantaras based on his 2011 Robert S. Engelmore Memorial Lecture.

Our selections for this issue begin with Playing with Cases: Rendering Expressive Music with Case-Based Reasoning by Ramon Lopez de Mantaras and Josep Lluis Arcos, based on the Robert S. Engelmore Memorial Lecture at IAAI-11 in San Francisco, California. Lopez de Mantaras received the Robert S. Engelmore Memorial Lecture Award for his pioneering research contributions in a breadth of artificial intelligence areas, especially pattern recognition and case-based reasoning, leading to novel applications in design, diagnosis, and music, and for extensive international leadership and service for the AI community. He is also a founding member of several AI companies. He has a wealth of inspiring experience to report from his research on rendering expressive music with case-based reasoning.

The IAAI-12 articles selected for this issue describe emerging applications. Each article closely studies the application, describes how its real-world constraints shaped the technological approach, and reports on preliminary experiments on real data or in real environments. All of these articles supply useful insights into use cases that we hope can also be translated to other work of the AI community.

In the first of the emerging application articles, Machine Learning for Personalized Medicine: Predicting Primary Myocardial Infarction from Electronic Health Records by Jeremy C. …
