Abstract:

BBNs ARPA project in Knowledge Representation for Natural Language Understanding is aimed at developing techniques for rendering computer-based assistance to a decision maker who is attempting to understand and react to a complex, evolving system or situation. The decision makers access to the situation is mediated by an intelligent graphics display system, which is controlled largely through natural language input. The work during this past year falls into two main categories fundamental problems in knowledge representation and reasoning, and fluent natural language understanding. In this report, we first give a brief overview and summary of the activities of the project during the year. This is followed by a series of detailed presentations of research in particular areas. In addition, we document publications and presentations by members of the research group.
