The fields of artificial intelligence, intelligence control, and intelligent systems are constantly changing in the subject area of information science and technology. Semiotics and Intelligent Systems Development assembles semiotics and artificial intelligence techniques in order to design new kinds of intelligent systems. A reference publication, Semiotics and Intelligent Systems Development brings a new light to the research field of artificial intelligence by incorporating the study of meaning processes (semiosis), from the perspective of formal sciences, linguistics, and philosophy.
