This book is a collection of some of the papers that were presented during aNATO Advanced Research Workshop held in
Kusadasi, Turkey, August 24-28, 1992. Attendance at this workshop was mainly by invitation only, drawing people representing industry, government and the academic community. Many of the participants were internationally recognized leaders in the topic of the workshop.
The papers in the volume are grouped in six parts, with a balance of theory and applications. Some papers provide introductory and overview material as well as reviews of the state of the art and others provide detail in specialized areas which can be useful to practitioners. The parts discuss the following topics:
- Intelligent systems: analysis and assessment issues
- Dependability of intelligent systems
- Intelligent front ends
- Learningsystems
- Safety and reliability of advanced robotic systems
- Dependability considerations in industrial applications.
