This article provides a brief introduction to aspects of mass spectrometry (MS) that employ artificial intelligence (AI) and expert system (ES) technology. These areas have grown rapidly with the development of computer software and hardware capabilities. In many cases, they have become fundamental parts of modern mass spectrometers.
Specific attention is paid to applications that demonstrate how important features of MS are now dependent on AI and ESs. The following topics are specifically covered: history, MS data systems, biological applications, artificial neural networks (ANNs), and optimization techniques.
