Abstract:

A learning program designated CE, Concept-EPAM, is described that modifies EPAM through the introduction of a set membership relation. The effects of this extension are considered with respect to methods of storing concept descriptions in memory and methods of specifying learning and retrieval. The learning strategies consist of interactions between image elaboration and tree modification. Implementations of CE are considered for a concept learning task and a pair associate task. Applicability of CE to a geometry analogy task requiring relational concepts is discussed. The relationship between the learning of concepts of concepts and feature extraction is illustrated.
