Abstract:

This ARPA project in Knowledge Representation for Natural Language Understanding is aimed at developing techniques for computer assistance to a decision maker in understanding a complex system or situation using natural language control of an intelligent graphics display. The work in progress falls into three classes fluent natural language understanding in a graphics context - including helpful systems that go beyond mere passive execution of literal instructions, fundamental problems of knowledge representation and use, and abstract parallel algorithms for knowledge base inferential operations. This report gives a brief summary of the activities of this research project during the past year. In addition, publications, and presentations during the past year are documented.
