Abstract:

This report summarizes work done in artificial intelligence. Research is reported on in the following areas applications of generic task methodology to learning, design, and planning theoretical and critical studies of connectionism, neural nets, and symbolic computation and studies of the uses of distributed systems for concurrent algorithmsimplementation for abductive assembly a basic generic problem solving task. Topics include A corrective learning procedure using different explanatory types A task oriented approach to knowledge-based systems for process engineering design An information processing model of japanese foreign and energy policy decision making Understanding device feedback Connectionism and information processing abstractions--The message still counts more than the medium Some experiments with neural nets From numbers to symbols to knowledge structures--AI perspectives on the classification task Distributed synthesis of composite explanatory hypotheses.
