Purpose. To develop intelligent information technology for processing visual information for the metals state diagnostics. As against the already existing technologies it will allow diagnosing the state of metal by all characteristics (chemical composition, structure, properties).

Methodology. The methods of comparative study, scientific abstraction and mathematical simulation have been used in the study.

Findings. The basic stages of the intelligent information technology have been described. The neural networks choice to solve the problem of automation metallographic analysis at all its stages has been substantiated. The neural networks results for metallographic images recognition to determine quantitative information about metal have been shown. The neural network results to determine the metals properties by samples of steel of different grades have been described.

Originality. We have developed the intelligent information technology of visual information processing for the metals state diagnostics based on the neural networks and the precedents theory. It can diagnose the metals state by all its characteristics (chemical composition, structure, properties).

Practical value. Scientific results of the work allowed us to develop the intelligent information technology of the visual information processing for determination of metals properties. The software which implements the methods and the stages of the developed information technology have been created.
