This volume contains the revised versions of the papers presented at the Eighth International Symposium on Methodologies for Intelligent Systems (ISMIS '94), held in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA in October 1994.
Besides four invited contributions by renowned researchers on key topics, there are 56 full papers carefully selected from more than 120 submissions. The book presents the state of the art for methodologies for intelligent systems; the papers are organized in sections on approximate reasoning, evolutionary computation, intelligent information systems, knowledge representation, methodologies, learning and adaptive systems, and logic for AI.
