This paper explores several points regarding the development of the field of artificial intelligence and its potential impact on library science. The discussion is motivated by the nature of future library collections and services that will made available (in part) through artificial intelligence applications and by the basic need for intelligent analysis of the vast volumes of data and information that will be available through continuing developments in storage and dimensions and objects of thought, and several example of current research areas concerned with these more specific problems are described. A general field-wide dialectic between research oriented towards these specific problems and research oriented the integration of these specific capabilities into broader systems is described and related to the general question of improving the capabilities of interactive intelligent systems. These issues are discussed in the context of several definitions of intelligence and artificial intelligence and are illustrated in the example of a specific system.
