The Sixteenth Annual Conference on Innovative Applications of Artificial Intelligence (IAAI-04) continues the IAAI tradition of including both case studies of deployed applications and papers on emerging AI applications. The deployed applications papers all include concrete measurements of the benefits provided by AI technology. IAAI is organized as an independent program within the AAAI national conference, with schedules coordinated to allow attendees to move freely between AAAI and IAAI sessions. We appreciate the cooperation of the AAAI organizers, since we believe the collocated conferences both benefit from each other.
