Literature survey, Artificial intelligence methodologies, Fuzzy systems, Neural network, Expert systems


The rapid growth in the field of artificial intelligence from past one decade has a significant impact on various application areas i.e. health, security, home appliances among many. In this paper we aim to review artificial intelligence methodologies and their potential applications intended for variable purposes i.e. Agriculture, applied sciences, business, engineering, finance, management etc. For this purpose articles from past one decade (from 2004 to 2013) are reviewed in order to explore the most recent research advancements in this domain. The review includes 172 articles gathered from related sources including conference proceedings and academic journals. We have categorized the selected articles into four main categories i.e. fuzzy systems, neural network based systems, neuro fuzzy systems and expert systems. Furthermore, expert systems are further classified into three categories: (i) rule based expert systems, (ii) knowledge based expert systems and (iii) intelligent agents. This review presents research implications for practitioners regarding integration of artificial intelligence techniques with classical approaches and suggestions for exploration of AI techniques in variable applications.
