Interval talks at the INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON INTELLIGENT TECHNOLOGIES InTech’2000 Bangkok, Thailand, December 12–14, 2000 On December 12–14, 2000, the International Conference on Intelligent Technolo- gies was held in Bangkok, Thailand. At this conference, more than 70 talks were presented by researchers from 20+ countries. Among other topics, the conference organizers speciﬁcally solicited talks on interval computations. V. Kreinovich was invited to present a plenary talk on Interval Computations and Their Applications, and several talks described applications of intervals. Most of these talks were about Artiﬁcial Intelligence-type applications, where sub-intervals [a, b] of the interval [0, 1] describe the expert’s uncertainty in a certain statement. This interval description is often more adequate than the more traditional numerical description, because it takes into consideration not only how conﬁdent we are in a statement S, but also how conﬁdent we are in our estimate of this conﬁdence. For example, the numerical approach cannot distinguish between the degree of certainty that the coin toss will result in a head (for which the probability is 0.5) and our degree of conﬁdence in a statement about which we do not have any information. In the interval approach, the coin toss conﬁdence is represented by
