The Northeast Artificial Intelligence Consortium NAIC was created by the Air Force Systems Command, Rome Air Development Center, and the Office of Scientific Research. Its purpose was conduct pertinent research artificial intelligence and to perform activities to this research. This report describes progress during the existence of the NAIC on the technical research tasks undertaken at the member universities. The topics covered in general are versatile expert system for equipment maintenance, distributed AI for communications system control, automatic photointerpretation, time-oriented problem solving, speech understanding systems, knowledge base maintenance, hardware architectures for very large systems, knowledge-based reasoning and planning, and a knowledge acquisition, assistance, and explanation system. The specific topic for this volume is plausible inference as an effective computational framework for the retrieval of complex objects.
