This book is an essential reference tool for individuals interested in applying state-of-the-art artificial Intelligence and its related modeling methods within areas that deal with materials production and manufacturing, from raw materials and ore to final consumer products.
IPMM is an organization of over 400 individuals from over 45 countries who come together every two years to share in new ideas and applications that use intelligence (artificial or otherwise) to achieve new designs, novel planning methods, improved system optimization techniques, advanced process control or monitoring methods in different fields dealing with material science and engineering.
.... a highly unusual work in its field....a forward-looking and authoritative answer (on how) machine intelligence (is) being employed....in the world of materials.
