Research is progressing on two fronts our learning robotics system and natural language processing. The robotics system is nearly implemented. It will run in INTERLISP on a XEROX 1108 Lisp Processor. Most of the major component sub-systems have been finished. A solid modeling system has been implemented to support the reasoning necessary for manipulation of pieces within a workspace. It can model cylindrical and rectangular solid primitives which can be added and subtracted to form complex pieces. A graphics package has been developed which is capable of presenting any of the complex pieces on a bitmapped video screen as correct perspective wire-frame drawings. A schema organization sub-component has also been developed. There are three projects proceeding in the area of natural language processing.
