The Challenge of Intelligent Systems

Abstract

This paper analyzes the meaning of intelligence within the domain of intelligent control. Because of historical reasons, there are varying and diverse definitions of what constitutes an intelligent control system. Due to the multidisciplinary nature of intelligent control, there are no good formal measures for what is an intelligent controller or for its performance. We argue that there are characteristics which can be used to categorize a controller as being intelligent. Furthermore, the measure of how intelligent a system is should take into account a holistic view of the system's operations and design requirements. Beginning with the definition of intelligence characteristics and performance measures, we can move towards a science of intelligent systems for control.
