Abstract:

The problem of representing, storing, recalling and processing of relevant information in the increasingly complex environment of an organism were studied by simulation based on list processing and by theoretical investigation drawing on sociology and psychology of cognition, engineering studies of semi-automated library systems, and mathematical theory of graph and automation. The following accomplishments were made progress toward a logical structuring of information science classification of types of discourse, modelling of an information system in terms of memory, processor and comprehender subsystems governed by self-regulatory principles operational analysis of special information systems specification and construction of computer programs for concept and language learning critical survey of associative memories key-address transformations for file organization and clustering algorithms based on measures of relevance.
