Abstract:

The versatility and advantages of using on-line interactive displays are illustrated by examples from 1 the General Purpose Display System GPDS, 2 the Pattern Learning Parser PLP II, and 3 the Bibliographic On-Line Display System BOLD. Although these systems are designed for different purposes they all utilize displays as communication channels by which the man and the machine are able to engage in a dialog and work together to solve problems. The computer processes data rapidly and displays the results. The information provided in the displays enables the user to steer and control the step-by-step progress of the program. Not only are problems solved more efficiently, but the users are more satisfied by the results achieved.
