Intelligent Problem Solving with Dr Neil Urquhart of Edinburgh Napier

Dr Neil Urquhart is a lecturer at Edinburgh Napier University in the field of AI, and he was kind enough to share one of his fantastic articles on the subject.

Many real-world scheduling and routing problems are difficult to solve, for a long time AI techniques worked towards simply finding a feasible solution. It was enough to build a plan for scheduling a production process, organising a set of deliveries or rostering staff, producing an error free plan represented a significant challenge. In many cases such an automated plan might well not be as useful as the plan produced by an experienced supervisor who has an intimate understanding of the business process
