Abstract

A growing number of applications are utilizing so-called intelligent systems. As for any complex system, specifications are necessary for guiding the implementation, evaluating the performance and verifying the product. We examine the question of what unique features are needed when specifying an intelligent system. We also investigate various specification techniques that may support these features.
