DEACON BREADBOARD PROCESSING.
GENERAL ELECTRIC CO SANTA BARBARA CALIF
The DEACON Direct English Access and Control Breadboard is an experimental system consisting of a complete package of computer programs, syntacticsemantic rules, and data for establishing the feasibility of basic techniques for direct English access and control of a digital computer. This report is primarily concerned with the processing aspects of the DEACON Breadboard, though the system as a whole is briefly presented. The major routines, including handling of the dictionary, sentence parsing and semantic analysis, are discussed at length. Two methods for using the magnetic-tape peripheral memory in conjunction with list processing are presented. In addition, there is a step-by-step procedure given to show how the tapes are built.
