Abstract:

Computerized maintenance manuals contained in massive, on-line text and graphics data bases require an intelligent facility for information retrieval. An unsophisticated user must be able to easily find specific facts, procedures, etc. without having to specify precisely the information he seeks. Hughes is developing an intelligent retrieval approach based on semantic network knowledge representation. Because conventional serial computers are too slow for large semantic networks, we have designed and prototyped special purpose, parallel processing hardware called Associative Loop Memory ALOOP. ALOOP also dynamically organizes a knowledge base in a manner that imitates human memory. Author
